The sun, moon, and Earth will align on Sunday night, creating an eclipse of the moon that is complete on May 15 15. It occurs at the time that the Earth moves into a position between the sun and completely the moon. The Earth creates a massive shadow on the moon’s surface, giving the moon’s surface a reddish tint. That’s the reason lunar eclipses are sometimes referred to as blood moons.
Are you looking for an eclipse telescope to see the moon’s shadow? We suggest you look at that Celestron Astro Fi 102 as the best option in our most complete guide to beginners’ telescopes.
This Sunday’s moon full is regarded as a supermoon. This implies it is brighter and more prominent than the average moon because it’s the closest point to Earth within its orbit. It is often referred to as perigee.
Total lunar eclipses can be observed from the Americas, Antarctica, Europe, Africa, and the East Pacific. In addition, an eclipse of the moon that is penumbral, which occurs when the shadow of the Earth is reflected on the moon, can be observed in New Zealand, eastern Europe, and the Middle East.
