Partial lunar eclipse this morning

MIAMI VALLEY — This morning the Earth moved between the Sun and Moon casting a shadow on the moon which is known as a lunar eclipse. This was the longest partial lunar eclipse in more than 500 years!

This time around the three celestial bodies did not line up perfectly so it wasn’t a total lunar eclipse. Instead, the Earth’s shadow covered the majority of the moon.

If you woke up early, the eclipse began at 1 a.m. with the max eclipse occurring around 4 a.m. Looking at the moon you may have noticed the moon gets a reddish tint to it as the maximum eclipse occurred. The event ended around 7 a.m.
