Some 64 million miles from the planet, NASA's Lucy probe got a deep space view of the recent total lunar eclipse.

The one that just occurred last weekend was the longest total lunar eclipse viewable from most of the United States in over 30 years,
The video covers a three-hour period, starting at 9:40 p.m. ET May 15, and ending at 12:30 a.m. ET May 16. The clip ends before the moon comes out of the darkness.
