The world's Longest eclipse


THE WORLD'S LONGEST ECLIPSE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's longest eclipse?

To start, there are two types of eclipses, a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse, and we'll shed some light of both.

A solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun.

The longest a total solar eclipse can last, theoretically, is 7 minutes and 31 seconds and the longest recorded solar eclipse we could find lasted 7 minutes and 8 seconds in 1955.

If you're around on July 16 2186 you'll have the opportunity to experience an all but perfect solar eclipse lasting 7 minutes and 29 seconds.

A lunar eclipse is an eclipse of the moon and occurs when the Earth passes between the moon and the Sun.

The longest recorded lunar eclipse occurred on May 31 318 lasting 1 hour 47minutes and 14 seconds.
