Maximum in Dubai This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Dubai. The true maximum point of this eclipse cannot be seen in Dubai 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-southwest 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.

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.
