The May 15 Total Lunar Eclipse

Astro Café: The May 15 Total Lunar Eclipse

On May 15, 2022 a total lunar eclipse will occur and North America is favored for its viewing. Here in Edmonton, as the sun sets, the totally eclipsed Moon will rise in the southeast. As the sky darkens, the reddened Moon should become more and more visible. The total phase of the eclipse lasts for about an hour and a half as the Moon glides low above the southeast horizon. This will make for very scenic viewing and photographing but will require a low horizon.

Join us at this Astro Café as we preview the lunar eclipse with some short presentations to help you enjoy watching the event on May 15, when the Earth casts its shadow onto the Moon.

Geoff Robertson: What is a lunar eclipse?
Luca Vanzella: Where to watch the lunar eclipse?
Alister Ling: How to photograph the lunar eclipse.
