The last lunar eclipse of the year runs from night to Friday morning and is visible in some parts of the world. The moon almost completely falls into the earth’s shadow and is illuminated by the sun, producing a bright red glow. Because it was 99.1% of the moon rather than the entire moon, it is considered a partial lunar eclipse.

This lunar event also made history: NASA predicted the eclipse would last about three and a half hours, making it the longest partial lunar eclipse for 580 years.

If you didn’t catch a glimpse this morning, Next A total lunar eclipse will take place on May 15-16, 2022. The Holcomb Observatory at Butler University in Indiana says the East Coast of the US and the entire Americas will have the best views.
