“When a lunar eclipse is in progress, it’s visible from any place on earth where the moon is visible… nominally half of the earth’s surface. There is no month during which a lunar eclipse can’t occur, and no place on earth from which a lunar eclipse can’t be seen.

The story is completely different regarding SOLAR eclipses. When the sun is in eclipse, the appearance is different depending on the observer’s position on earth; in particular, the eclipse appears ‘total’ from only a small region at any one time.

If the question had specified a ‘solar eclipse’, then in Antarctica, for example, there is a large part of the continent where the sun never rises in June, so a June solar eclipse could never be observed from there.”
