CINCINNATI — We saw a partial lunar eclipse overnight!

The reddish hue was visible on the moon when we hit the maximum eclipse at 4:02 a.m. It then ended by 5:47 a.m. under a clear sky.

We saw the moon in 97% shadow at its max. Technically, it's one of the longest lunar eclipses at 6 hours and 1 minute from start to finish, the longest in 580 years!

Here are some additional photos from our WCPO 9 viewers.
