Can I see the eclipse?
The absolute best viewing areas for viewing the entire penumbral eclipse are:
- East Asia
However, the western portions of America and Canada will be able to view most of the eclipse, as the moon will set after the mid-point of the eclipse. Locations between the west coast and east coast of America and Canada will vary, depending on moonset times, and those along the west coast will miss the eclipse entirely, due to the moon setting before the eclipse starts.
