We are about to experience a partial lunar eclipse in a few days, but what does that mean?

A partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Full Moon. However, the three bodies do not precisely line up when the eclipse takes place.

On Thursday, November 18, and Friday, November 19, 2021, we will experience the second lunar eclipse of this year. Most locations will be able to see at least 97% of the moon slip into the Earth’s shadow, and luckily for North America, we are supposed to have the best location to witness this special phenomenon.
