On Tuesday, August 28, star gazers on the West Coast of the United States witnessed a spectacular natural phenomenon - a full lunar eclipse that lasted for one and a half hours. The first stage of the eclipse started at 01:51 hrs local time, and in one hour the Moon was completely immersed in the Earth's umbra, until 04:22 in the morning. A partial lunar eclipse was visible on the West Coast for another hour, until 05:24 in the morning (4:24 p.m. Moscow time).
The East Coast was less lucky since the eclipse there lasted for just half an hour before sunrise.
The August 28 lunar eclipse was the longest in the past seven years
