A total lunar eclipse -- the longest of the century -- was visible Friday night across much of the Eastern Hemisphere.

The moon appeared red in the night sky as it moved into Earth's shadow, perfectly aligned with Earth and the sun.

Totality lasted about an hour and 43 minutes, and a partial eclipse could be seen before and after that.

Those in North America and other parts of the Western Hemisphere were out of luck, as the eclipse happened during daytime hours there.
