Problem

The diagram below shows the shadow cast by Earth at one point during the year. An observer is located on Earth at the point indicated.
Earth is shown to the right of the sun, and the moon is shown to the right of Earth. The moon is fully covered by Earth’s shadow. The observer is located on the dark side of Earth, farthest from the sun.
Based on the diagram, would the observer see a lunar eclipse at this point during the year?
