Lunar eclipse – what is it?

A lunar eclipse occurs during a full moon. At this time, our natural satellite, the Earth and the sun align. The planet blocks sunlight from reaching the moon, leaving some of it in shadow.

In the event of a November eclipse, only the lower edge of the moon will be illuminated. The remainder of the dial will turn reddish. Where does this color come from? This is because of the oxygen and nitrogen molecules in the Earth’s atmosphere. They are better at scattering certain shorter wavelengths of light (blue or purple), so longer wavelength colors (red, orange or yellow) are visible longer. When the Moon is in the shadow of the Earth, reddish colors predominate.

When is the next eclipse?

The November lunar eclipse will be the second of its kind in 2021. Two weeks later, on December 4, 2021, there will be a total solar eclipse.

In turn, we will have to wait until May 16, 2022 for the next lunar eclipse.
