The longest partial lunar eclipse in over the last 600 years is about to grace our skies tonight, and you definitely don’t want to miss this!

According to NASA, this partial lunar eclipse is expected to last as long as three hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds. Now, that’s longer than a full university lecture!

According to DailyHive, “98% of the moon will be covered by the earth’s shadow at the height of the eclipse, making it the largest one of the century.”

Canadians will be able to watch the eclipse only as of 2am on November 19, with its peak only happening around 4am on Friday morning. Whereas, our lovely neighbors across the border will be lucky enough to have the best seats for the full sky show.

Nasa predicts that the next longest partial lunar eclipse should only occur in February 2669, so you might want to pull that all nighter!
