Lunar Eclipse 2022 - When will it be visible?  Lunar eclipse in Poland on the night of May 15-16.  How to observe a lunar eclipse

A lunar eclipse awaits us on Sunday night. South Americans would be more fortunate to see the Silver Globe in the phase of a total eclipse. In Poland, the eclipse will be visible as partial. Observations of the phenomenon in our country will not be easier, because the eclipse occurs with the sunset of the moon in the bright sky, about four in the morning.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon line up and a full moon enters our planet’s shadow region. This situation will occur closest to the night of May 15/16. There is a total and partial eclipse and semi-shadow.

Total lunar eclipse. Where will it be visible

The total lunar eclipse will be seen in South America, eastern and southern parts of North America, as well as in Antarctica, parts of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and the western fringes of Europe and Africa. During a total eclipse, sunlight, refracted by Earth’s atmosphere, reaches Earth’s natural satellite, giving it a blood-red color.

As celebrity astronomer Carol Wojcicki and author of the blog With His Head in the Stars asserted, this year’s lunar eclipse in May will be “one of the most interesting astronomical phenomena in South America of the year.” As he explains, at night the eclipse will be visible there from start to finish of the whole phenomenon “high in the sky.”

The whole phenomenon will last several hours. The beginning of the semi-visible eclipse will be at 3:32, and the beginning of the partial eclipse will be at 3:32. 4.28, the total eclipse will begin at 5.29, and the phenomenon will reach its maximum at 6.13. The total eclipse will end at 6.54, the partial eclipse at 7.55 and onward at 8.51. The semi-visible eclipse will end.

Lunar eclipse in Poland. Anytime you will be able to see them

Observers in Poland will see the lunar eclipse as a semi-shadow, as well as the first parts of the partial eclipse phase. The size of this piece will depend on where you are. For example, in Bialystok, the moon will be set around 4.28, in Gdansk and Warsaw around 4.41, and in Szczecin and Wroclaw around 5.02.

Observations will not be easy, because the moon will be low above the horizon, in the already glowing morning sky. Wójcicki points out that “only the brightest stars” will be better visible in the sky. He stated that with a clear horizon, it should be possible to depict “a slight darkening on one side of the Silver Globe”.

A lunar eclipse only occurs when it is in the full moon phase. But why is there no eclipse at every full moon? This is because the orbit of the silver ball is slightly inclined to the plane of the Earth’s orbit (by a few degrees) and not every time the moon hits the Earth’s shadow cone. However, once an eclipse occurs, it can be observed from all places on our planet where the moon is visible above the horizon.

The maximum full moon for this year in May on Monday will be around 6.15am. The full moon of this month is called the flower moon, and it is associated with the abundant flowering of many plants at this time of year. The original origin of the names given to each full moon dates back to the Native Americans.

Other terms for the May full moon are corn moon, because it was planted this month, and the Milky Way, because this was the time when cows’ milk increased. Some sources also refer to it as the Hare Moon, but this name is more commonly used to refer to the full moon in March.

If you observe a full moon or a lunar eclipse, please share your photos by sending them to contact 24.

We’ll wait a little longer for a total eclipse in our country

The next lunar eclipse will occur in a few months, on November 8, but it will not be visible from Poland. In our country, we will see a total eclipse on December 20, 2029.

A lunar eclipse is one of the easiest astronomical phenomena to observe. No special equipment is needed for this. To see as much detail as possible, it is worth using binoculars, for example.
