A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon red the night of May 15

Hot on the heels of the year’s first solar eclipse — a partial eclipse on April 30 — a total lunar eclipse is on the horizon.

Between the late evening of May 15 and the early morning of May 16, depending on your time zone, the full Flower Moon will enter Earth’s shadow, causing a total lunar eclipse that will be visible from the majority of the Americas and Antarctica, as well as the western reaches of Europe and Africa and the eastern side of the Pacific. Skywatchers in New Zealand, eastern Europe and the Middle East will experience a penumbral eclipse, during which only the edge of Earth’s shadow falls over the moon.
