On November 19, 2021, The Beaver Moon partial lunar eclipse will be the longest since the 15th century.
According to astronomers, on Friday, between 06:02 a.m and 12:03 p.m UTC — the Sun, Earth, and Moon will come to be in near-perfect alignment to produce a partial lunar eclipse.
According to space experts, at approximately 09:02 a.m UTC about 97.5 percent of the Moon’s face will be covered by the Earth’s shadow. It will last for approximately 6 hours and 2 minutes.
Assuming your region is able to see the full eclipse, the penumbral eclipse (when the moon passes into the darker part of the Earth’s shadow) will start at 1:02 a.m. EST (0602 GMT). The partial eclipse, during which the moon goes into the umbra or the darker part of the Earth’s shadow, will start at 2:18 a.m. EST (0718 GMT).
Maximum eclipse is at 4:02 a.m. EST (0902 GMT), during which the moon may turn a dark red or a ruddy brown color.
The last time a partial lunar eclipse lasted this long was February 18, 1440. The next time will be on February 8, 2669.
