Don’t worry about not seeing the Moon tonight: The next time that’ll happen will be 4bn years from now.
Despite the apparent insignificance of the Moon’s shadow to the Earth, the phenomenon is extremely dangerous to our planet: It slows down the energy entering our atmosphere; in particular, it reduces the cooling effect of the sun’s rays.
So we can’t simply let the Moon follow its course, dimming by a few shades. When that happens in a big way, like at the moment we’ve seen, it warns us that climate change could be coming. In more detail, that’s climate change caused by greenhouse gases.
The exact duration of the eclipse, per the calendar, is: 12h 29:46 UTC.
