Sunday is May's Full Moon, It's the Flower Blood Moon with a Lunar Eclipse
May's Full Moon is this Sunday, May 15th, 2022.... it is the Flower Moon.
May's Flower Moon will coincide with a total lunar eclipse, and will also be the year's first supermoon!
In fact.... there will be four supermoons this year, May's will be a blood moon as a result of the total lunar eclipse.
A lunar eclipse takes place when the Earth is sandwiched directly between the Moon and the Sun, causing the Earth to cast a shadow on the Moon.
In contrast, a total lunar eclipse occurs when "the Moon is fully obscured by Earth's shadow," per the publication — resulting in a reddish hue, hence the nickname "blood moon."
The Flower Moon will reach its peak just after midnight on Monday, May 16 at 12:11 a.m. ET.
This is when it will look like a blood moon, taking on its reddish hue.
If you look to the sky.... you can begin to catch a glimpse of it the evening, this Sunday, May 1th, 2022.
