The last total lunar eclipse of the year, also known as a blood moon because of the reddish tinge the full moon takes on when fully eclipsed, would happen on November 8.

A partial lunar eclipse will begin at around 4:09 p.m., and totality will begin at around 5:17 p.m. (Hanoi time). The total lunar eclipse would last about 85 minutes, when the moon will turn reddish-copper, reported.

The partial lunar eclipse can be observed from Iceland and regions in South America, south and central Asia and Russia. North America, several regions in South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand will be able to observe the total lunar eclipse.

This is the second lunar eclipse of the year, the first one being observed in May. Two lunar eclipses would also be observed in May and October next year.
