What is a Partial Lunar Eclipse?

For those curious about what a partial lunar eclipse entails, NASA explains that lunar eclipses transpire during the full moon phase when the moon and sun align, and the Earth’s shadow transforms the moon’s appearance into a striking bright red for a few hours. A partial lunar eclipse occurs when Earth positions itself between the full moon and the sun, partially obscuring the moon.
