SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Did you see Saturday morning’s lunar eclipse? On the west coast, the short event lasted until approximately 5 a.m.
NASA calculated the total eclipse — the moment when Earth’s shadow completely blocks the moon — at only five minutes. Using a different model, the U.S. Naval Observatory put it at about 12 minutes. In either case, it’s the shortest lunar eclipse of the century.
