According to scientists, the longest possible theoretical duration for totality during a lunar eclipse is 107 minutes.
"Such long duration of total lunar eclipses had occurred on July 16, 2000 for a totality duration of one hour 46 minutes and another on June 15, 2011 for a totality duration of one hour 40 minutes".
