There will be a complete lunar eclipse next week

A full lunar eclipse will begin on Monday at dawn, which will also be observed from Hungary before sunrise, as a partial lunar eclipse on the horizon.

As reported in the Svábhegy Observatory, on May 16, a relatively long total lunar eclipse is expected.

The explanation for the phenomenon is that every year or two, the Sun, Earth, and Moon fall into exactly one line, and the Earth’s vast cone of shadow obscures sunlight. During a total lunar eclipse, the lunar disk will not darken completely but will turn orange-red due to the effect of light scattering in the Earth’s atmosphere.

While the total eclipse will be well perceived in America, only the beginning of the phenomenon, the partial eclipse, can be observed in Hungary.

The process in Hungary will begin at dawn at 4:27 a.m., when the Moon will be barely 6 degrees above the southwestern horizon. To observe the lunar eclipse, therefore, a completely free southwestern horizon is required.

According to the announcement, the dwindling crescent moon will hover over binoculars and small binoculars as it hovers over horizon landmarks.
