Did You See the Lunar Eclipse Last Night?

Last night, a partial lunar eclipse occurred and turned the full moon of November, 2021, into a reddish-orange color for several hours, referring to the spectacle as a “blood moon”. The eclipse, which experts say was the longest partial lunar eclipse in centuries, was visible in the night skies over North America, large chunks of northern South America, northeastern Asia, and eastern Australia. 

In case you missed last night’s lunar eclipse, you will have a chance to see one on May 15, 2022, when the moon will be completely submerged in the Earth’s shadow in a total lunar eclipse. That eclipse should be visible to sky-watchers across South America and in the eastern U.S. Then on Nov. 8 will be another total eclipse that will be visible mainly over the Pacific Ocean.
