It will be visible from
the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the eastern Pacific, the South Pacific and even Antarctica.
Between the late evening
of May 15 and the early morning of May 16, depending on your time zone, the full Flower Moon will enter Earth's shadow
It will cause a total lunar eclipse
that will be visible from the majority of the Americas and Antarctica, as well as the western reaches of Europe and Africa and the eastern side of the Pacific
According to TimeandDate.com,
the partial eclipse will begin on May 15 at 10:28 p.m. EDT reaching its maximum on May 16 at 12:11 a.m. EDT. That total eclipse effect can give the moon a reddish hue known as a Blood Moon.
Lunar eclipses always happen during
full moons. Full moons occur when the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun — the sun then illuminates the entire face of the moon as seen from the perspective of Earth.
Because the moon's orbit is tilted
about 5 degrees compared to the Earth's orbit, the moon usually avoids the Earth's shadow; a lunar eclipse occurs when it doesn't.
