PHOTOS: Partial lunar eclipse seen across Grand Strand
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – Stargazers were treated to a rare sight early Friday morning.
The longest partial lunar eclipse this century was seen across most of North America, and the Grand Strand was no exception!
A partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth moves between the Sun and the full moon.
Because they are not totally aligned, only a part of the Moon’s surface moves into the dark part of the Earth’s shadow.
Several WMBF News viewers shared photos they snapped of Friday’s astronomical event.
