Lunar eclipses: Everything you need to know

A lunar eclipse occurs when Earth aligns between the sun and the moon and casts a shadow across the lunar surface. A lunar eclipse only occurs during a full moon. Lunar eclipses can last as long as six hours, according to the European Space Agency (ESA). 

There are three types of lunar eclipses depending on how the sun, Earth and moon are aligned at the time of the eclipse.  

  1. Total lunar eclipse 
  2. Partial lunar eclipse 
  3. Penumbral lunar eclipse
