The next total lunar eclipse will be on March 13, 2025.
The first lunar eclipse Delaware 2022 could be seen in Barcelona in all its splendor in the early hours of the night of the Monday, May 16. It was a total lunar eclipse and perfectly visible from high places and with little light pollution.
And it was special for another reason: because it coincided with the phenomenon blood Moonwhat happens when the sun, the earth and the moon They are aligned so that our planet’s shadow covers the entire face of the Moon. The sunlight that manages to pass through the atmosphere is refracted towards the red part and is projected onto the lunar surface, causing it to be seen in a orange or reddish hue.
Two weeks after the partial eclipse
This Tuesday, I will experience a similar phenomenon again: a lunar eclipse match the call blood Moon. And it happens just two weeks after the partial eclipse that he could see in our country.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth casts a complete shadowcalled shadow, on the moon. Earth’s shadow is classified into two parts: the umbra, the innermost part of the shadow where direct light from the Sun is completely blocked, and the penumbra, the outermost part of the shadow where light is partially blocked.
Start and end
Unfortunately, the eclipse will be visible in Asia, Australia and North America, but not from Spain. The total duration of the eclipse will be one hour and 25 minutes. In penumbra mode, it will be five hours and 52 minutes, and in partial eclipse mode, three hours and 39 minutes. The beginning of the penumbral eclipse will take place at 9:02 a.m. peninsular time over America and the Pacific. The partial eclipse will be visible from 10:09 a.m. and the total eclipse will begin at 11:16 p.m. It will end at 12:41 p.m. The shadow eclipse will end at 1:48 p.m. and the penumbral eclipse at 2:54 p.m. It will have been visible in its later phases in western North America, the Pacific, Australia and Asia, reports the National Astronomical Observatory.
In addition, from last the 5th and until this Friday, Mars is visible «almost in the center of the winter hexagon», according to the Madrid Observatory, which adds that «the Moon will set in the west and on the 11th you will see it next to Mars.»
If you look at the sky before sunrise you can see Mars almost in the center of the winter hexagon. It is taking the first steps in its retrograde motion, but it is still difficult to appreciate. The Moon will be setting in the west and on the 11th you will see it next to Mars. pic.twitter.com/Mfkuz0Jp7h

In 2023 and 2024, the moon will experience a partial lunar eclipse, when only part of the moon passes through the umbra, or a very slight penumbral eclipse, when the moon plunges through the outermost layer of the shadow of Earth, called the penumbra.
