Lunar Eclipse 2021: Date, time, where to watch 

Lunar Eclipse 2021 or Chandra Grahan November 2021: The second lunar eclipse of the year will take place on November 19. It is the longest partial lunar eclipse in 580 years and will be visible at 2.34 pm as 97 per cent of the moon will be covered by the Earth’s shadow. The moon is likely to appear blood-red in colour, which happens when the red beams of the sunlight pass through the Earth’s atmosphere and get least deflected and fall on the moon.

The last time a partial lunar eclipse of such length occurred was on February 18, 1440, and the next time a similar phenomenon can be witnessed will be on February 8, 2669
