Super Flower Blood Moon lunar eclipse around the world

by May 16, 2022Science0 comments

The world witnessed the first Total Lunar Eclipse of the year, also known as the ‘Blood Moon’. Accompanying this phenomenon was the fact that it was the full moon in the month of May, also known as the ‘Flower Moon.

Moon watchers around the world had a great time watching the moon turn blood red during the total lunar eclipse. The full flower moon passed through the shadow of planet Earth on the night of May 15 and 16.

Notably, the full moon was also close to its closest point to the earth for a month, which added to the list of phenomena and eventually made it the Super Flower Blood Moon lunar eclipse. Phew.

India may have skipped the moon’s invitation to witness this beautiful phenomenon. However, here are photos from around the world where the moon basked in its glory and looked majestic.

And for those who suffered desperately from FOMO, let us tell you, many along the east coast of the US faced bad weather that blocked their view. However, it was definitely an impressive sight in regions of North and South America, Antarctica, Europe, Africa, and the Eastern Pacific.
