Lunar Eclipse 2022, the most stunning spectacle of the skies when the Moon will appear red in colour and also larger in size than usual as what is called the Supermoon, will take place on May 15 and 16.

Falling fully into Earth's shadow, the Moon will slowly darken before turning dusky red.

The Moon will appear larger than usual because it will be at its closest point to Earth of its orbit, giving it the name super Moon.

It will be visible with the naked eye before dawn on Monday in most of Europe. The Americas will get a great view on Sunday evening, according to NASA.

How India is situated

As per Indian time, the eclipse will occur at 7:02 am IST on the morning of May 16 and will end at 12:20 in the afternoon. However, the lunar eclipse will not be visible in India.
