The first lunar eclipse of 2022 occurs with Monday’s Full Moon.
The eclipse will happen in the early hours before dawn, as the Moon is low on the horizon, and the Moon will take on an increasingly red colour as totality approaches.
Totality of the eclipse is at 4:29am, Monday morning, but weather permitting, early risers will be rewarded with a bright brownish-red Moon before it descends below the horizon just after 5am.
Other names attributed to this Moon full of the promise of summer are:
- Leaf Budding Moon
- Planting Moon
- Egg Laying Moon
- Field Making Moon
- Frog Moon
- Moon Of The Shedding Ponies!
Next month on 14th June 2022, the Strawberry Moon will be the first Supermoon of 2022.
