Lunar Eclipse 2021: Longest Partial Chandra Grahan to Occur tomorrow after 580 Years
By Sanjay Maurya
Lunar Eclipse 2021 or Chandra Grahan November 2021: On November 19, the year’s second lunar eclipse will occur. The longest partial lunar eclipse in 580 years will be seen at 2.34 p.m., with the Earth’s shadow covering 97 percent of the moon. When red sunlight beams penetrate through the Earth’s atmosphere with the least degree of deflection and fall on the moon, the moon will seem blood-red in colour. The last time a partial lunar eclipse of this length occurred was on February 18, 1440, and the next time one will occur will be on February 8, 2669.
The US space agency NASA announced on November 2 that a partial lunar eclipse would occur overnight on November 18th and 19th, when the Moon will pass under Earth’s shadow for a few hours. The eclipse will be viewable from any position where the Moon appears above the horizon during the eclipse, weather permitting. It will happen earlier or later in the evening for you depending on your time zone, according to reports.

North America, South America, Australia, the Pacific Region, and eastern Asia will all be able to see the partial moon eclipse.

What is Lunar Eclipse?
When the earth passes between the moon and the sun, causing the moon to be obscured by the earth’s shadow, a lunar eclipse occurs. Total, partial, and penumbral lunar eclipses are classified by the intensity and degree to which the earth’s shadow covers the moon. On this day, the moon may appear blood crimson in colour. This occurs when sunlight passes through the earth’s atmosphere with the least amount of deflection and lands on the moon.
At 12:48 p.m., a partial eclipse will begin and persist until 4:17 p.m. With a duration of 5 hours and 2 minutes, this eclipse will be the longest in 580 years. The partial eclipse will last 2 hours and 53 minutes, with the full eclipse lasting 14 minutes. The penumbral eclipse will begin at 11:32 a.m. and end at 5:33 p.m., when the sun, earth, and moon are not exactly aligned. At 2:34 p.m., the maximum partial eclipse will be visible, with the earth’s shadow covering 97 percent of the moon.
