North America is going to totally miss out on the longest lunar eclipse of the century
North America, and more specifically the United States, got treated to a spectacular total solar eclipse in 2017, but the entire northern half of the Americas will be missing out on what might be the best skygazing event of 2018. A lunar eclipse is slated to take place on July 27th, and while lunar eclipses are a fairly regular occurrence no matter where you live, this one will be particularly fantastic.
Scientists anticipate the eclipse will last approximately one hour and 43 minutes, making it the longest solar eclipse of the century and a truly one-in-a-lifetime event. Unfortunately, everyone in North America is going to totally miss out on it.
