There is a treat for everyone in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and a lot of other points in the Western Hemisphere further are in for a photographic gem tonight: A global event called the partial lunar eclipse. The whole event lasts the total time of 3 hours and 28 minutes, and is to be considered the longest partial lunar eclipse in modern history (the longest in 580 Years) and the last for a long time. The start of this major event’s penumbral phase starts at 12:02 a.m. CDT, then the partial phase starts at 1:18 a.m. CDT, and then finally the maximum phase of partiality, or shadow is at 3:02 a.m. CDT. The whole event spans over a six hours and one minute time period throughout the nighttime hours. The moon will enter Earth’s shadow and gets very close, within just 3% off totality being at 97% totality. The eclipse moon turns very close to a blood red color nearest the point of the maximum partiality phase in the lunar eclipse. This is the second eclipse in a set of them over more than two years visible from the United States.
