The timings of the phases of the eclipse are as follows. You would have been able to see each phase of the eclipse if the Moon was up at the corresponding time as seen from your location; however the penumbral phase would have been very difficult to see in practice:
|Penumbral eclipse began:||08:15:36 UT|
|Partial eclipse began:||09:14:48 UT|
|Total eclipse began:||10:25:09 UT|
|Maximum eclipse:||10:54:35 UT|
|Total eclipse ended:||11:23:59 UT|
|Partial eclipse ended:||12:34:19 UT|
|Penumbral eclipse ended:||13:33:39 UT|
During this eclipse the Moon was just 2 days past perigee, making it fairly large. At maximum eclipse it was 0.554° in apparent diameter, which is 4.3% larger than average. The statistics page has information on the ranges of the sizes of the Sun and Moon.
In Asia, the eclipse will be visible after sunset, as the Full Moon rises. Viewers in Thailand, central China, and western Mongolia will see the Moon rise during the total eclipse; in Australia, Indonesia, and eastern China and Mongolia, the total eclipse will begin after the Moon has risen.
New Zealand, Hawaii, and others in the Pacific will have a fantastic view of the entire eclipse.
In South America, only the north-western countries will see the total eclipse, and only some of it as the Moon sets. Panama will miss the end of the total eclipse; from Nicaragua west, the whole total eclipse will be visible. In North America, only Nova Scotia will miss out completely; and west of New York / Virginia, the whole total eclipse will be visible close to dawn, as the Moon dips in the west.
This map shows the visibility of the eclipse at various stages. The bright area in the middle saw the whole eclipse; the coloured bands to the right saw the start of the eclipse, and those on the left saw the end. Note that the map is approximate, and if you were near the edge of the area of visibility, the moon was very close to the horizon and may not have been practically visible.
You can use the zoom controls to zoom in and out, and pan to see areas of interest. Hover your mouse over the tags to see what was visible from each area on the map. The green marker in the centre shows where the Moon was directly overhead at maximum eclipse.

The Sun and Moon distances are shown in km, and as a percentage of their minimum - maximum distances; hence 0% is the closest possible (Earth's perihelion, or the Moon's closest possible perigee) and 100% is the farthest (aphelion, the farthest apogee). The statistics page has information on the ranges of sizes of the Sun and Moon.
