From Earth you may be able to view Lunar Eclipse depending on the Moonrise Moonset Times. When the Moonrise does not happen during the eclipse time, you cannot witness eclipse.

Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Earth lies in between the sun and Moon, and the Earth’s shadow falls on the Moon. Anyone on the surface of the Earth that faces the Moon at the time of Lunar Eclipse can view it.

Partial Eclipse occurs when the outer part of Earth’s shadow (umbra) crosses the Moon and if the moon is in close to the center of Earth and the central part of the shadow covers the Moon, the result is a total Eclipse. Eclipse can only occur the night of a Full Moon Day.
