Total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon) – May 15 & May 16, 2022
Total Lunar Eclipse is visible in South/West Europe, South/West Asia, Africa, much of North America, South America.
During the Lunar eclipse, two shadows are cast by the Earth on the Moon. The first shadow is the Umbra, which means complete dark shadow. And the other is known as Penumbra or partial outer shadow. The moon moves through both of these shadows in stages. Since the penumbral shadow is not prominent, the initial and last stage of an eclipse is not noticeable. Hence, the eclipse is noticed when an umbral shadow is cast on the Moon.
