The longest partial lunar eclipse in more than 500 years has dazzled night skies around the world, in an event dubbed the "blood moon" due to its red haze. According to NASA, the partial eclipse, which lasted 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds, was the longest since February 18, 1440.
During the eclipse, up to 99.1 percent of the Moon's disk was within Earth's darkest shadow, NASA said. There will be a longer total lunar eclipse in November 2022.
