During the deep partial lunar eclipse of November 18-19, 2021, some 97% of the moon was submerged in Earth’s shadow. The moon took on the coppery red color characteristic of a total lunar eclipse. This eclipse was particularly viewable from North America. And EarthSky heard from many observers – both at our community photo page and at EarthSky Facebook – who saw the eclipse. It was grand! Our thanks to all who contributed photos!
