Vietnamese people can observe the final phase of the partial lunar eclipse from the moment the moon has just risen until about 5:47 pm.
In the afternoon and evening (November 19), people around the world have the opportunity to witness a partial lunar eclipse. Because the lunar eclipse lasted for nearly three and a half hours, it was the longest lunar eclipse in 580 years.
The lunar eclipse on November 19 can be observed well over most of the Pacific islands, North America, South America, most of Australia, parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. In particular, the islands in the Pacific Ocean and the countries of North America will be the places with the best conditions to observe the lunar eclipse.
The lunar eclipse started at 14:19″, peaked around 4pm and ended at 17:47″ on November 19 (Hanoi time). In Vietnam, due to the time when the moon rises after 5pm, Vietnamese people can only witness the final phase of the partial lunar eclipse.
Below are pictures of the partial lunar eclipse on November 19 recorded in many parts of the world:
