Are you preparing for this weekend’s total lunar eclipse? If you’re in North America or South America then on Sunday, May 15 through the early hours of Monday, May 16, 2022, a ‘Blood Moon’ total lunar eclipse will be entirely visible. If you’re in Western Europe or West Africa then you’ll also get a peek at a red Moon before moonset on Monday, May 16. The entire event will take about five hours, though the all-important totality—when the Moon will turn a dark copper-reddish color—will last for a mighty 84 minutes.
Here are all the resources you need to get the best from this spectacular natural event, specially prepared for Forbes by WhenIsTheNextEclipse.com editor Jamie Carter:
