Maximum Eclipse Moon is closest to the center of the Sun.
Since the Sun is near the horizon at this time, we recommend going to a high point or finding an unobstructed area with free sight to East-northeast for the best view of the eclipse.
Additionally, the eclipsed moon combined with dimming near horizon might make the Moon very hard or impossible to see.
