The Moon will turn a deep red during the total lunar eclipse
The lunar eclipse will happen this weekend, overnight on 15-16 May.
In the UK, the Moon will begin to enter the Earth’s shadow just after 2.30 am. The full eclipse will happen just before 4.30 am.
We will be able to see the eclipse from around 2.30 am until 5.10 am, when the Moon will set below the horizon.
In London, the Royal Observatory says that the optimal viewing time will be between 4.29 am and 5.06 am when the Moon will be entirely in the Earth’s full shadow and will appear red.
