Friday’s total lunar eclipse will last nearly two hours

Friday’s total lunar eclipse will last nearly two hours, but the U.S. misses out

One of the longest total lunar eclipses of the centuries will light up the skies around the world on Friday night into the wee hours of Saturday morning.

The good news is that millions of people around the world — from almost all of Africa to the vast majority of Asia — will be able to see the moon gradually turn a deep blood red during the total lunar eclipse.

 

The bad news? No one in North America or Greenland will get to see it.

At its longest point, the eclipse will last for 1 hour and 43 minutes.
