Here are some of the best shots of last night's partial lunar eclipse (PHOTOS)

Last night, the longest partial lunar eclipse in nearly 600 years dazzled Canadian skies.

According to NASA, the eclipse lasted a staggering three hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds. At its peak, 98% of the moon was enveloped by the earth’s shadow.

Our natural satellite took on a faint, coppery glow that, combined with the uneclipsed sliver of yellow, created a breathtaking “Japanese Lantern Effect.”

If you missed the celestial spectacle, you’re out of luck for quite some time: the next time a lunar eclipse will surpass the length of last night is on February 9, 2669.

Luckily for those who chose a good night’s sleep over a bit of moon-gazing, Canadians were out in full force to capture last night’s partial lunar eclipse.

Check out some of the best shots of the night below.
