By Benjamin Flowers: Tonight, the world will witness a lunar eclipse where the moon will pass through the earth’s shadow and turn red, an event that is called the “Flower Moon.”
The Flower Moon will begin to be visible in Belize at 7:32 p.m., will peak at 10:11 p.m., and conclude at 12:50 a.m. on Monday, May 16.
Space.com reports that the lunar eclipse is coinciding with a “Supermoon” where the moon is at its perigee (the closest approach to Earth of the month, in its orbit), which should make for an even grander spectacle.
The last lunar eclipse occurred on May 26, 2021. The next total lunar eclipse will be in November, which will be visible throughout most of the U.S. The next lunar eclipse after that won’t be until March 2025.
