Chandra Grahan 2022: Shortly after the first partial solar eclipse of the year, the first lunar eclipse of 2022 will be visible from parts of the Earth. The total lunar eclipse or chandra grahan 2022 falls on May 15 and May 16 and will be visible from several sides.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon and Sun are on opposite sides of the Earth. This year’s lunar eclipse will also cause the “bloody moon” phenomenon. The bloody moon occurs when a reddish tinge is reflected on the moon, which gives it a unique look.

Those who wish to witness the first lunar eclipse of 2022 on 15 and 16 May can do so, given the same times.

On May 16, the lunar eclipse will begin at 7:02 a.m. and end at 12:20 p.m. This astronomical event occurs when the Moon enters the shadow of the Earth.

It should be noted that in 2022 there will be a total of two total lunar eclipses. The first lunar eclipse of the year will take place on May 16, and the second will take place on November 8, 2022. The bloody moon will be visible at the eclipse on May 16.

Many are wondering whether Chandra Grahan will be seen by us or not. Unfortunately, the lunar eclipse, which is scheduled for May 16, will not be seen in India. Meanwhile, it will be visible throughout South America and the eastern parts of North America.

As you witness the lunar eclipse, you will also notice that there is an orange-red hue on the moon, which is called the “blood moon”. This is a phenomenon when the moon in a total eclipse looks reddish in color, as it is illuminated by sunlight, filtered and refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere.

Those who want to observe a lunar eclipse can do so by visiting NASA’s official website. NASA will also broadcast the event live on its social media platforms and YouTube channel.
