NASA has announced a unique celestial phenomenon for November 19: the longest partial lunar eclipse of the century.
It is a heavenly spectacle that we will definitely not see in our lifetime: On November 19, 2021, according to NASA, the longest partial lunar eclipse in almost 580 years will take place. According to experts, the next one will not happen again for 648 years, on February 8th in the year 2669. Thus, the partial lunar eclipse on November 19th will be within over a thousand years. However, the happiness of admiring this heavenly phenomenon is not granted to everyone.
echo24.de * reveals when and where the longest partial lunar eclipse of the century can be admired. The spectacle lasts exactly 3 hours, 28 minutes and 23 seconds. During a partial lunar eclipse, a shadow from the earth is cast over the moon. This is currently in its orbit at the most distant point on earth, which is why the partial lunar eclipse also lasts so long: The moon takes longer to orbit the earth and thus enters the earth’s shadow longer. * echo24.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
