Lunar Eclipses In The 2020’s Visible From The PNW

Lunar Eclipse

In this article, we will be discussing upcoming Lunar Eclipses, the types of lunar eclipse, and much more! {How often they occur and when they can be viewed}

There are 3 types of lunar eclipses:
1) Penumbral lunar eclipse: This type of eclipse occurs when the moon is in Earth’s faint outer, penumbral, shadow.
2) Total lunar eclipse: This is when the Earth’s full, umbral, shadow falls on the moon.
3) Partial lunar eclipse: This eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth, and moon are not quite perfectly aligned.

For more information about each type of lunar eclipse, check out this article on the subject. This article will cover eclipses visible in the Pacific Northwest from late 2020 to 2029. NASA has a great resource for this and future information about lunar eclipses here.
