Skywatchers Glimpse Last Total Lunar Eclipse for Three Years

The last total lunar eclipse until 2025 was visible on November 8 across North and Central America, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, according to NASA.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon moves into the shadow of the Earth, which usually results in the moon taking on a dark reddish color. This is often referred to as a “blood moon”.
