A spectacular spectacle will unfold in our skies on the night May 15/16. The Full Flower (Blood) Moon is the first complete lunar eclipse in 2022. It can be seen in Poland as a partial. NASA produced a live broadcast for this occasion.
How does a lunar eclipse form?
A lunar eclipse is when the sun, moon, and earth (in that order), are aligned in a straight line. The shadow cast by the Earth at its center over its satellite natural is a shadow. But where did the red that accompanies this phenomenon come from?
Thanks to the “so-called” Refraction – The reflection of light that happens as it passes through Earth’s atmosphere. They are also dispersed by it, affecting color of visible Blood Moons.
As explains Dr. David Diner– NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory researcher:
While dust and pollution in the lower atmosphere can dimen the color of rising or setting sunlight, fine smoke particles and aerosols that rise to significant heights during large volcanic eruptions may intensify the color.
Where is the lunar eclipse visible? When is it best to observe?
It will be possible to enjoy the full moon in South America, the eastern and southern North Americas, western Europe, Africa and other parts of the world. Only the partial and half-shade will be visible in Poland.

Watch a complete lunar eclipse from a safe location
A full lunar eclipse does not have to happen just because we’re not at the perfect time and place. NASA took care by organizing this. NASA Science Live. This is not only a chance to observe the phenomena of the first order but also a chance to ask experts questions.
Now it’s time to look forward to the truly cosmic premiere. Are you ready to get your binoculars out or betting on coverage online?
