On the night of May 15/16, 2022, North America will witness a total lunar eclipse. This amazing celestial lineup of the Sun, earth and the moon will play out with eastern and central time zones seeing the entire event.
This is a very safe event as the full Flower moon moves into the earth’s shadow for almost three and a half hours. Eclipse times are:
Partial umbral eclipse begins: 10:27 p.m. Moon enters the earth’s shadow.
Total lunar eclipse begins: 11:29 p.m. Moon turns dark orange or red.
Greatest eclipse: 12:11 a.m. Mid-point of the eclipse.
Total lunar eclipse ends: 12:53 a.m. Moon begins to leave the shadow.
Partial umbral eclipse ends: 1:55 a.m. Moon completely exits earth’s shadow.
