    When Is the Next Lunar Eclipse and When Is the Next Blood Moon?A red moon crossed the sky in the early hours of Friday morning– or late Thursday night depending on location– as part of a sensational near-total lunar eclipse.During the eclipse, which showed up throughout North America, practically all of our moon plunged into Earth’s shadow, darkening its bright white surface.For those who missed it because of cloud cover– or simply because it was daytime in their part of the world– there’s no requirement to worry. There are multiple lunar eclipses every year. According to TimeandDate.com, which notes eclipses for the next ten years, the next lunar eclipse will occur between May 15 and 16, 2022.

When we look at the moon during a lunar eclipse, the moon appears dark.The Earth does not quite obstruct all of the sun’s light, however.

    Some light is still able to reach the moon, however only after travelling through the atmosphere at the very edge of our planet.This light tends to redden as it travels through the gases that comprise our

    environment. The light then shines onto the moon, appearing to alter its color. This phenomenon is likewise why daybreaks and sunsets look red and orange.The second lunar eclipse of 2022 will happen in between November 7 and 8. It will be another overall eclipse or blood moon.It will mostly be noticeable over the Pacific Ocean, according to an eclipse map on TimeandDate.com. Individuals in North America can expect to see the eclipse too.There tend to be 2 or three lunar eclipses and solar eclipses each year.During a solar eclipse, daylight is temporarily blocked as the moon crosses in front of the sun, blocking

    its light from reaching Earth.The “total” part of a solar eclipse tends to last only a few minutes, but in this time parts of the Earth are plunged into darkness.The next solar eclipse takes location in just over

    two weeks, on December 4, according to TimeandDate.com. Skywatchers in the U.S. will have to wait longer to observe one, nevertheless.
