The longest lunar eclipse in 600 years has lit up skies across the United States, according to stunning photos.
A BEAUTIFUL lunar eclipse occurred this morning in the United States, and it could be seen for more than three hours.
About 97 percent of the full Beaver Moon was covered by the Earth’s shadow.
The eclipse started around moonset for viewers in the UK, so they only got a small glimpse if they were lucky.
The timings were ideal for viewing the eclipse in its entirety in North America, however.
During the eclipse, the part of the Moon visible was reddish in color.
In general, an eclipse is defined as a body passing between us and a light source, obliterating the source.
However, it can also happen when a body gets in the way of a light source and the body that the light is illuminating, obscuring the illuminated body.
The Earth passes between the Moon and the Sun, resulting in a lunar eclipse.
The Moon, or a portion of it, is obscured by Earth’s shadow.
A solar eclipse, on the other hand, occurs when the Moon passes directly between the Sun and the Earth, causing the Earth to be in the Moon’s shadow.
In the United States, the eclipse began at 01:02 ET and ended at 02:18 ET, when the Moon appeared to be obscured.
Due to a disruption in the light waves that can reach us on Earth, an eclipse turns the Moon reddish.
