Partial Lunar Eclipse 25-26 April

Hi!

Does any one know the exact time of this? I read that it's a 27 min event and the first of 3 eclipses this year, but the only one which isn't solely penumbral.
I'd love to check it out but I read that partial starts 19:54 utc - if this means it will be at 05:54 here (sydney)- after the moon sets?

Does anyone know if we can view this in sydney, and if so, what time?

Moonset is nominally at 06:33.
Maximum eclipse will be about 2% and is at 06:07 AEST April 26, at which time the Moon will have altitude about +4 a bit south of due west. The partial phase lasts for 32'.

Thanks for the reply, Andrew.

It seems as though this may not be worth waking up early to see? Might wait for the total which is happening next year.
