Maximum in Kushiro This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Kushiro. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Kushiro because the Moon is below the horizon at that time.
Since the Moon is near the horizon at this time, we recommend going to a high point or finding an unobstructed area with free sight to East for the best view of the eclipse.
Map direction East 92°

Penumbral Eclipse ends The Earth's penumbra ends.
Moon close to horizon, so make sure you have free sight to East-southeast.
Map direction East-southeast 101°

The curvature of the shadow's path and the apparent rotation of the Moon's disk is due to the Earth's rotation.

During this penumbral lunar eclipse, the Earth's main shadow did not cover the Moon. As the Earth's shadow (umbra) misses the Moon during a penumbral lunar eclipse, there were no other locations on Earth where the Moon appeared partially or totally eclipsed during this event. A penumbral lunar eclipse can be a bit hard to see as the shadowed part is only a little bit fainter than the rest of the Moon.
