Total lunar eclipse: the most beautiful images of the phenomenon around the world

2022-05-16T07:49:58.314Z

This Monday morning, very early in France, the phenomenon dazzled the curious with a striking spectacle that rarely occurs.



It shouldn't be missed.

Some Earthlings were able to witness a total lunar eclipse on the night of Sunday to Monday, an infrequent celestial spectacle during which the nocturnal star loses its brilliance and gradually turns red.

In Metropolitan France, the Earth, by positioning itself in the axis between the Sun and the Moon, deprived its satellite of the light emitted by the star between 5 am and until shortly after 6 am.

A spectacular and rare phenomenon, especially in France, where the clouds sometimes spoiled the party, especially in Paris.

Too bad, because if in mainland France the last total lunar eclipse dated back to 2019, the next visible one will be for… 2029!

Until then, here is a non-exhaustive selection of the most beautiful shots of the Red Moon from last night, through photos from around the world.
