According to international time UTC, a lunar eclipse will occur on October 29, 2023 which will be visible in some parts of the world. The following shows the cities in Papua New Guinea from which the eclipse could be visible (note that the following is a short list of some of the main cities, the eclipse may be visible from other cities not listed here). The date and local time of the event shown below.
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 partial lunar eclipse in your country, you can see the table below. (Click on the image to enlarge it).
Eclipse schedule in Papua New Guinea
The following table shows the schedule and phases of the partial lunar eclipse of October 29, 2023 in Papua New Guinea. For each city we have assigned a time zone which is very precise and it takes into account Daylight Saving Time (if applicable).
You can read the table above as follows: On October 29, 2023 in Port Moresby, Pacific/Port_Moresby (UTC 10), an partial lunar eclipse will start at 04:02, the maximum eclipse will occur at 06:14 when the Moon reaches an altitud of -8°; this event will come to an end at 08:26 and will have a penumbral magnitud of 1.118 (this is the fraction of the Moon obscured by the entrance to The Earth's penumbra) and an umbral magnitud of 0.122 (fraction of the Moon obscured by the umbra of The Earth).
We must take into account the altitude of the moon, for example, in Port Moresby, due to the low altitude of the Moon (-8 degrees) this lunar eclipse will not be very obvious.

A Moon-planet conjunction occurs when an astronomical object has either the same, or nearly the same, right ascension or the same ecliptic longitude of that of the Moon, as observed from Earth. Check all the conjunctions in October 2023.
