Rare show as Super Flower Moon to combine with Lunar Eclipse – fr


Night sky watchers in the western United States should enjoy a “flower blood super moon” in the wee hours of Wednesday morning.
When the moon enters Earth’s shadow, it turns a blood red color during a total lunar eclipse, the first time in two years that it can appear from the United States.

While the super moon will be visible around the world, a partial eclipse will only be visible over large parts of the United States and Eastern America, as well as parts of East Asia.

“Hawaii has the best seat in the house and California and the Pacific Northwest will miss it,” said Noah Petro of NASA, project scientist for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Experts say it will all start around 1:47 a.m. PST on May 26, when viewers from Southern California to Washington state begin to see subtle changes in the color of the moon.

After several hours of traveling in the Earth’s shadow, the moon will begin to turn red around 2:45 a.m. PST.

As it continues to travel in the Earth’s inner shadow, the entire face of the moon will turn a deep red, starting in the Los Angeles area around 4:11 a.m. PST.

Due to the way the moon orbits in orbit, the total eclipse will only last around 11 minutes and end at 4:25 a.m. PST.

Viewers will then be able to watch the whole process upside down as the moon leaves Earth’s shadow before sunrise.

Super Flower Blood Moon 2021: What is the meaning of the name of the May full moon?

A double lunar show this week will make May’s full flower moon very special, combining the largest and brightest super moon of 2021 with the first lunar eclipse in almost two years.
The eclipse – which is only visible in parts of Asia, Australasia, and the Americas – will also make the moon appear reddish, earning it the nickname “Blood Moon.”

The ‘blood’ super moon will be the most spectacular in years

This month’s full moon will appear larger, brighter, and redder than usual, as the rare simultaneous occurrence of a super moon and a lunar eclipse occurs in parts of the world on May 26.
