This image shows the global map with two regions: the shaded region where you can not see the lunar eclipse, and the blank region, where it can be seen. The image details the type of eclipse, the magnitude of the penumbra and umbra, Saros series to which this eclipse belongs, among other data. The date and time displayed in this image are international date and time, therefore, they might not apply to your country. However, to know the date and exact time of total lunar eclipse in your country, you can see the table below. (Click on the image to enlarge it).
