Not everyone will be able to catch a glimpse of the total lunar eclipse because it needs to be nighttime to see it, said Noah Petro, chief of NASA’s Planetary Geology, Geophysics and Geochemistry Lab.
People in South America and in the eastern part of North America will have a great view of the lunar eclipse
, Egli ha detto. The total lunar eclipse will be visible in much of Africa
, Europe and South America and most of North America
About two lunar eclipses occur each year
, and the next will be a total lunar eclipse in November
, Petro said
. Then there will not be another total lunar eclipse until March 2025
, Ha aggiunto.
How to view the eclipse
It is perfectly safe to view a lunar eclipse with your naked eye, according to Petro.
“That’s the great thing about lunar eclipses is that you require no other gear other than a passion and interest in being outside and a clear horizon,” Petro said.
For optimal viewing conditions, avoid bright lights and tall buildings that could obstruct your view, Egli ha detto.
While the eclipse’s peak may only last for a short amount of time, the moon’s coppery tones will change throughout the night, according to Petro. These changes make this celestial phenomenon interesting to watch throughout the eclipse rather than at a particular moment, Egli ha detto.

There will be seven more full moons in
2022, secondo The Old Farmer’s Almanac
- giugno 14: Strawberry moon
- settembre 10: Harvest moon
These are the popularized names associated with the monthly full moons
, originating with Native American tribes
. The names vary from tribe to tribe because a full moon had different significance across the tribes month to month or season to season
Lunar and solar eclipses
In addition to one more total lunar eclipse in
2022, there will also be a partial solar eclipse
, secondo The Old Farmer’s Almanac
Partial solar eclipses occur when the moon passes in front of the sun but only blocks some of its light. Be sure to wear proper eclipse glasses to view solar eclipses safely as the sun’s light can be damaging to your eyes.
A partial solar eclipse on October 25 will be visible to those in Greenland, Iceland, Europa, northeastern Africa, Medio Oriente, western Asia, India and western China. It won’t be visible from North America.
After this weekend
, the next total lunar eclipse will also be on display for those in Asia, Australia, the Pacific and South and North America
in novembre 8 fra 3:01 a.m. e 8:58 a.m. E — but the moon will be setting for those in eastern regions of North America
Check out the remaining nine showers that will peak
- Southern delta Aquariids: luglio 29-30
- Alpha Capricornids: luglio 30-31
- Southern Taurids: novembre 4-5
- Northern Taurids: novembre 11-12
If you live in an urban area, you may want to drive to a place that isn’t littered with city lights to get the best view.
Find an open area with a wide view of the sky. Make sure you have a chair or blanket so you can look straight up. And give your eyes about 20 per 30 minuti — without looking at your phone or other electronics — to adjust to the darkness so the meteors will be easier to spot.
