This Tuesday, November 8, a lunar eclipse could be observed in several parts of the globe. The opportunity for the spectators to take magnificent photos.

The last lunar eclipse took place on May 16 and, to the delight of astronomy enthusiasts, a new one took place on Tuesday, November 8. During the eclipse, the Moon, Earth and Sun were aligned.

During its full phase, the Moon passed in front of the Earth's shadow, which blocked the solar radiation that usually illuminates the Moon. This phenomenon is very rare since it only occurs when the Moon is full.

A new lunar eclipse

This lunar eclipse is the second to occur in 2022. The phenomenon lasted approximately 1h25, starting at 11:16 a.m. and ending at 12:41 p.m. As the Moon was in the cast shadow of the Earth, it took on a copper-red hue, which made for a magnificent sight to behold. For the occasion, many photos were taken all over the world.

If the phenomenon was not visible everywhere, the inhabitants of French Polynesia, New Caledonia, North-West America and North-East Asia were able to enjoy the spectacle. We will have to be patient to observe a similar spectacle again since the next lunar eclipse will take place in 2025.
