Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
July 16 @ 2:30 pm - 8:30 pm AST
Unfortunately, the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse for July 16th, 2019 will be barely visible on Bonaire.
The maximum eclipse will be at 5:30 PM, but the moon will still be under the eastern horizon. The moon will rise at 7:02 PM on Bonaire, and the maximum eclipse available to be seen on Bonaire will be at 7:05 PM. This is the moment when the eclipse reaches its greatest magnitude while the entire Moon is above the horizon in Kralendijk. Since the Moon is near the horizon at this time, it is recommended to go to a high point or finding an unobstructed area with free sight to East-southeast for the best view of the eclipse.
At 8:17 PM, the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse will end.
