(WJW/WCBD) – The only lunar eclipse visible to people in North America this year is coming up soon.
The Flower Moon will be the next full moon on May 15th and 16th.
It will also be a supermoon, meaning the moon’s orbit will be closest to Earth at the same time it is full.
In addition, the new moon will be passing into the Earth’s shadow for a lunar eclipse.
It’s also being called a Super Flower Blood Moon eclipse because the eclipse will make the moon’s hue look red.
TimeandDate.com says the partial eclipse is scheduled to begin in the Upstate on May 15 at 10:28 p.m. EDT.
It will be red-hued at its peak on May 16 at 12:11 a.m. EDT.
The event ends at 1:55 a.m. EDT.
