A partial lunar eclipse is coming up this month – and it will be the longest of this century. The eclipse will take place overnight on November 18 and 19, when the moon slips into Earth's shadow for 3 hours and 28 minutes, NASA said. The late November moon is also known as the "frost moon."

In 2018, the longest total lunar eclipse occurred: 1 hour, 42 minutes and 57 seconds.
