The moon turned crimson after a total lunar eclipse occurred from 03:29 GMT on Monday, May 16. The moon was completely covered by the Earth’s shadow, giving it a rich, dark red shade. Because of this, lunar eclipses are often referred to as “blood moons.” A supermoon occurred by chance during the eclipse: This is when the moon is at the closest point in its orbit to the Earth, it appears larger than usual. Crowds gathered near Athens at the Temple of Poseidon in Greece to see the super blood moon. In Europe, however, the phenomenon was only visible for a portion of that time due to the setting sun. Meanwhile, clear skies in the Americas captured the incident.

Eclipses only happen twice a year, but the Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts seven more full moons in 2022:

June 14: Strawberry moon
July 13: Buck moon
August 11: Sturgeon moon
September 10: Harvest moon
October 9: Hunter’s moon
November 8: Beaver moon
December 7: Cold moon

These are the names given by Native American tribes to the monthly full moons. The titles vary from tribe to tribe since a full moon has distinct associations for different ethnic groups month to month or season to season.
