8:56 pm Sun, Mar 24RisingMoonrise Rising, but the combination of a very low moon and the total eclipse phase will make the moon so dim that it will be extremely difficult to view until moon gets higher in the sky or the total phase ends.Map direction East 91°

Maximum Eclipse Moon is closest to the center of the shadow.Map direction East-southeast 121°
1:32 am Mon, Mar 25
Penumbral Eclipse ends The Earth's penumbra ends.Map direction South-southeast 156°

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.
