See the amazing views of the longest partial lunar eclipse in 600 years

Partial lunar eclipse lasted more than 6 hours on Thursday night and Friday morning in many parts of the world, and spectacular views were recorded, some of which can be seen here.

November 19 (November 28) The sun set at 16:35 New York time, and on the other side of the sky, a full and clear moon rose over the city, in a clear, pollution-free sky. He stopped watching the partial lunar eclipse at 4:03 a.m., but in many parts of the world and with clear skies, many photographers stayed up late to capture this spectacular and rare sight. The result was photographs that magnificently depicted a partial eclipse showing a reddish rust sitting on the moon.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth is between the moon and the sun. If part of the moon passes through the shadow of the earth, a partial lunar eclipse occurs. Also, when more than 95% of the moon is in the Earth's shadow umbrella, the Earth's atmosphere acts as a filter on sunlight, causing the shadow that our planet casts on the moon to appear reddish, creating a sunset-like landscape.

This recent lunar eclipse, although not visible from Iran and other Middle Eastern countries, was significant because of its length. It took more than 6 hours from start to finish. Past lunar eclipses happened faster because the moon was closer to the earth in its orbit. It took longer. The last time a partial lunar eclipse occurred with this long time was in 1440 AD (819 solar years), 580 years ago.
