Deep partial lunar eclipse November 18-19

 

The Moon , Milky Way galaxy (treasurecoast.com) -A deep partial lunar eclipse will darken the moon for much of the globe on November 19, 2021 (overnight on November 18 for North America). Most locations will see up to 97% of the moon slip into Earth’s shadow. North America has the best location to see the entirety of the eclipse. Find maps and timing for the eclipse below. In some cases, the times are in UTC and you must convert.

This is an exceptionally deep partial eclipse, 97% of the moon will be covered by Earth’s dark umbral shadow. With a just thin sliver of the moon exposed to direct sun at maximum eclipse, the rest of the moon should take on the characteristically ruddy colors of a total lunar eclipse.

This is the second lunar eclipse of 2021. 

is eclipse occurs at the moon’s ascending node in Taurus.

The eclipse takes place 1.7 days before the moon reaches apogee (November 21 at 02:14 UTC), its farthest point from Earth for this month. For that reason, this is also the longest lunar eclipse in a span of some 1,000 years.

Viewers in North America and the Pacific Ocean, Alaska, eastern Australia, New Zealand and Japan will be able to see the entire partial lunar eclipse. Observers in western Asia, Australia, and New Zealand miss the early stages of the eclipse because they occur before moonrise. Similarly, South America and Western Europe experience moonset before the eclipse ends. None of the eclipse is visible from Africa, the Middle East, or western Asia.

THIS MORNING AFTER 8AM, 1590 WPSL WILL INTERVIEW, Jon Bell the director of the Hallstrom Planetarium, TO TALK ABOUT THE EVENT..
