The Secrets of the Universe

The century's longest partial lunar eclipse will take place on November 19. The partial lunar eclipse of November 2021 will last 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds to be exact, and 97% of the Moon will be covered in Earth's shadow. NASA says it will be an almost total lunar eclipse. The forthcoming eclipse will also be the longest partial lunar eclipse in 580 years.

The eclipse can be seen from Oceania, the Americas, Eastern Asia, Northern Europe, and Indonesia. It will be visible from all the 50 states of the US from 02:19 EST to 05:47 EST.
