Maximum in Playa de las Américas This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Playa de las Américas. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Playa de las Américas 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 West-northwest for the best view of the eclipse.

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 partial lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow covers only parts of the Moon, as seen from Playa de las Américas. There are no other locations on Earth where the Moon appears completely covered during this event. The Earth's shadow covers only a small portion of the Moon.
