Lunar Eclipse 2022: The first lunar eclipse of 2022 is now over, and pictures of the event are out, with the Moon taking on a stunning red colour. The eclipse, which was not visible in India, will be over by 12.30 IST and is now in the final phases.

This is also called a Super Moon and a Blood Moon as well. A Super Moon is a full moon and appears to be bigger than usual as it is closer to Earth thanks to its orbital position. It’s called a Blood Moon because Earth’s satellite takes on a reddish colour due to the Rayleigh scattering effect. This is because the Earth blocks sunlight from reaching the moon, but since the colour red has a longer wavelength some of it can still reach our satellite and making the moon appear red.

The ‘reddish tinge’ is more pronounced when there is more dust in the sky, according to NASA. The eclipse was visible in the eastern half of the United States and all of South America, some part of Europe and Africa as well. Most of Asia could not view the celestial event.
