All of North America witnessed some portion of the eclipse, but western observers were favored. The early penumbral or umbral phases was in progress at moonset for observers in Maritime Canada. From the eastern USA, the Great Lakes region and Ontario, the Moon set in total eclipse. Only observers to the west of the Rockies (including Alaska) were treated to the entire event. All phases of the eclipse were also visible from islands of the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand and eastern Australia. Various stages of the eclipse were in progress at moonrise for eastern Asia. No eclipse was visible from Europe, Africa and western Asia.
