May 2021 is jam packed with astronomical events. On May 26th, the full Supermoon is occulted by the Earth’s shadow to create a Blood Moon – a phenomena known as a Total Lunar Eclipse. Before this, May shows us two meteor showers, followed by 6 lunar conjunctions the rest of the month. May 2021 signifies the beginning of the Eclipse season, so watch for a Solar Eclipse during the next New Moon!
On the East Coast of the United States, the Prenumbral Lunar Eclipse begins at 4:47 AM EST, followed by the Partial Lunar Eclipse at 5:44 AM EST. Unfortunately, the Sun will rise and the Total Lunar Eclipse will not be viewable.
In the Central US, the Total Lunar Eclipse begins at 6:11 AM Central.
Out west in California and the Pacific Northwest, the Total Lunar Eclipse begins at 4:11 AM PST.
Learn more about these events in the Glossary of Astronomical Events!
