This weekend, the Total Lunar Eclipse of 2022 will be visible from Earth. The dates have been set for May 15 and 16. The eclipse will be viewable from a variety of locations throughout the world.
The year’s second total Lunar Eclipse will occur on November 8, 2022. This is the longest eclipse on the west coast of the United States this century, according to scientists. They also stated that the complete phase will last 1 hour 25 minutes and a half phase will go over two hours.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are perfectly aligned during a full moon.
What is a Total Lunar Eclipse?
When the Sun, Earth, and Moon align, the Moon slips into Earth’s shadow, creating a lunar eclipse. During a complete lunar eclipse, the entire Moon passes through the umbra, the deepest region of Earth’s shadow.
In most regions of the southern hemisphere, the eclipse will be visible. While the Moon will not be visible in India, areas of South America, Europe, and the Middle East will be able to witness it become blood red during the weekend. Up to 99.1% of the Moon’s disc will be within Earth’s umbra during this eclipse.
The eclipse will be visible in cities such as Rome, Brussels, London, Paris, Havana, Johannesburg, Lagos, Madrid, Madrid, Santiago, Washington, DC, New York, Guatemala City, and Rio de Janeiro, and Chicago. While these cities will view a eclipse, Ankara, Cairo, Honolulu, Budapest, and Athens will see a partial eclipse.
The celestial spectacle will be streamed live by Nasa. You may set a reminder for when NASA begins live broadcasting today and view it then.
