The longest partial lunar eclipse of the century will take place later this week.
NASA has said that the partial lunar eclipse will take place on the morning of November 19th.
The earth’s shadow will cover about 97% of the full moon.
It is best viewed from North America, where it should be visible for over three hours.
Viewers in the UK will only catch a glimpse with a little luck.
The part of the moon that is visible during the solar eclipse will look reddish.
It’s bad news if you are not in North America.
The Royal Greenwich Observatory said the partial lunar eclipse was “barely visible in Britain”.
However, people in North America will have the opportunity to see the solar eclipse in its entirety, as it will take place there at night.
Those in West Asia, Australia, and New Zealand were supposed to catch the later stages.
Africa or the Middle East will not see the solar eclipse because it is not night there.
South America and Western Europe can catch some of this.
The problem for the UK is that the solar eclipse starts at 06:02 GMT (01:02 ET), but the moon won’t really look darker until 07:18 GMT (02:18 ET).
The moon sets in Great Britain a few minutes later. So unless you have a great view of the northwest horizon, you might not see the solar eclipse at all.
However, there will be YouTube live streams of the event.
The time and date cover the entire solar eclipse live, so you can tune in even if the moon isn’t visible near you.
