We already had three lunar eclipses in 2020.
The final lunar eclipse of 2020 will appear over North and South America, the Pacific Ocean and its neighboring regions on Nov. 29-30.
Below you will find the visibility map for the last lunar eclipse of 2020, as the moon passes through part of Earth’s shadow.
All lunar eclipses in 2020 are penumbral eclipses, meaning the face of the moon will turn a darker silver color for a few hours.
On Nov. 29-30, about 82% of the Moon’s face will turn a shade darker during the maximum phase of this eclipse.
This fourth eclipse of the year will be the longest of the year, lasting 4 hours, 20 minutes and 59 seconds.
North and South America
In New York City, the eclipse begins on Nov. 30 at 2:32 a.m. EST (0732 GMT) and ends at 6:53 a.m. EST (1153 GMT), with maximum eclipse occurring at 4:42 a.m. EST (0942 GMT).
In the coastal city of Lima, Peru, the moon will make first contact with Earth’s penumbral shadow at 2:32 a.m. local time on Monday (Nov. 30). Most of the moon’s face will enter the shadow, and the eclipse will reach its maximum a couple hours later at 4:42 a.m.
