On Sunday May 15 and into Monday, 16, 2022 there’s going to be a big total lunar eclipse—a “Blood Moon”—visible across North America for a jaw-dropping 84 minutes.
All you need are clear skies and wide eyes.
On the night of May 15, 2022, and into the early hours of May 16, skywatchers will be treated to a spectacular phenomenon that takes place every 1.5 years or so: a total lunar eclipse.
Total lunar eclipses occur when the Moon and Sun are on opposite sides of Earth and the planet casts a complete shadow, or umbra, over its sole natural satellite. There may be multiple partial lunar eclipses each year, but total eclipses are a bit rarer. Best of all, unlike the precautions one must take to safely observe a total solar eclipse, it’s completely safe to watch a lunar eclipse unfold with the unaided eye. Even so, binoculars or a powerful telescope definitely can greatly enhance the experience.
I was able to take the information from the internet, I’m obviously not working at NASA!
