Watch the May 2022 Total Lunar Eclipse: Super Blood Moon webcasts

The moon will pass through the Earth’s shadow in a total lunar eclipse during the night of May 15th and 16th, the first Blood Moon of 2022, but if bad weather ruins your view, you’ll have options to watch it live online.

This will give you the chance to watch the Full Moon of Flowers experience a total lunar eclipse as the moon moves into Earth’s shadow. The eclipse will be visible in full phase from parts of the Americas, Antarctica, Europe, Africa and the eastern Pacific. A penumbral eclipse (where the edge of the Earth’s shadow will fall on the moon) is visible in New Zealand, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

While the timing depends on where you’re looking at the sky, says the partial eclipse phase of the lunar eclipse begins on May 15 at 10:28 pm EDT (0228 GMT on May 16). It will reach the peak of the Blood Moon in shades of red on May 16 at 12:11 pm EDT (0411 GMT). Then the event ends at 1:55 am EDT (0555 GMT). Note that the penumbral eclipse will begin about an hour before and end about an hour after the partial eclipse.
