Total lunar eclipse

  2:30 am - 4:30 am

A total eclipse of the Moon will be visible from the UK on Monday 16 May 2022. The event begins at 2:32am in the UK, with totality starting at 4:29am.

Totality will last for just under 85 minutes.

The best time to settle down to watch the eclipse will be around 3:37 BST, at the start of the visual phase when Earth’s umbra starts to traverse across the Moon (the penumbral phases are not visible).

During the eclipse, the Moon will appear completely red and will be visible close to the horizon in the west-southwest.

Try to find a location that's got a clear view of the horizon as the moon will be quite low, and if possible, above the level of street lights.
