The first significant astronomical event of 2022: On Monday, May 16, at 05:28 in the morning, a partial lunar eclipse will be seen in the skies of Israel - a situation in which the earth casts a shadow on the moon and hides it from our eyes.

Unfortunately, the lunar eclipse in Israel will last only about a quarter of an hour.



"We only see a few minutes from the land from the partial eclipse phase. And that too will be at about 5:20 on Monday morning," says Moshe Galantz, from the "Song of the Stars" observatory in Yeruham.

"If you are in Western Europe, North America, South America and most of Africa, your situation will be much better and you should update the details according to your location."



Dr. Yigal Fattal, director of the Givatayim Observatory, said in a conversation with Walla! Technology that "the stage where they will begin to see shadow on the moon, when the moon enters the shadow cast by the earth, will be at 5:28.

The moon will set at 5:42 p.m.

So in Israel they will only see the beginning of the shadow phase for about a quarter of an hour. "

"There is an earlier stage that starts at 4:32. But it is a stage where the earth does not hide all the sun from the moon and therefore it is very difficult to see it with the eye," Dr. Fattal added.



If you miss the next eclipse due to the early morning, you should know that on October 28, 2023, a partial lunar eclipse will be seen in Israel, while the next full lunar eclipse we can predict will only be on September 7, 2025
