The longest partial lunar eclipse in 600 years happens this week.
Friday morning the Full moon, known as the Beaver Moon, will be partially eclipsed and may turn a reddish color. The event will last about six hours and at peak, 97-percent of the moon’s surface will be shaded. The maximum eclipse should be visible to all of North America at about 4:02 am Eastern. It begins at 1:02 am Eastern and wraps at around 7:03 am Eastern.
Before trying to view the eclipse, take 20 minutes for your eyes adjust to the darkness so you can see it well.
