Total Lunar Eclipse May 2022: Date, Time & How To Watch Chandra Grahan Live

The first lunar eclipse of the year 2022 will occur on 15-16 May 2022. A lunar eclipse occurs when Earth comes between Sun and Moon, consequently casting its shadow upon Moon.

The lunar eclipse on Sunday will be a total lunar eclipse. According to NASA, a total lunar eclipse occurs when Moon moves into the inner part of Earth's shadow, also known as the umbra. Some of the sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere reaches the Moon's surface, lighting it dimly. Sometimes, during the eclipse, Moon also appears a bit reddish. This is, sometimes, also referred to as 'Blood Moon'.

Lunar eclipse is also known as Chandra Grahan in Hindi.

NASA further added that the eastern half of the United States and all of South America will witness every stage of the lunar eclipse. Totality will be visible in much of Africa, western Europe, Central and South America, and most of North America.
