Super Flower Blood Moon of 2022, the longest total lunar eclipse in 33 years, amazes astronomers

The moon turned an eerie blood-red color during a total lunar eclipse on Sunday night, May 15, visible to potentially millions of stargazers on four continents.

The lunar eclipse, celebrated as Super Flower Blood Moon, was the longest total lunar eclipse in 33 years, according to Space.com skywatching columnist Joe Rao. It was visible, weather permitting, from a wide swath of the world that spanned the Americas, Antarctica, Europe, Africa and the Eastern Pacific.
