Maximum in Milton Keynes This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Milton Keynes. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Milton Keynes 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 covered only parts of the Moon, as seen from Milton Keynes. There were no other locations on Earth where the Moon appeared completely covered during this event. The Earth's shadow covered only a small portion of the Moon.
