This eclipse will be completely visible over Australia, rising over eastern Asia and setting over western North America. To catch the entire eclipse, you must be located in the Pacific Ocean or in eastern Australia.

There will be two lunar eclipses in 2012 – a partial eclipse on June 4 and a very subtle penumbral eclipse on November 28, 2012. At maximum eclipse, approximately one-third of the moon’s face will be covered by Earth’s dark umbral shadow.
