So excited about a special cool weirdness this year 💫🌕✨
First a few quick facts about the upcoming trifecta on Sunday night, 15 May 2022 (around 11:30pm ET)
- Full moon
- Lunar eclipse
The upcoming full moon is also a lunar eclipse and will occur close to the moon’s perigee, making it a supermoon.
Perigee is the point when the moon is closest to the earth, so the moon appears about 7% bigger than average.
There are actually TWO total lunar eclipses this year. That’s unusual. The next is in early November with a Scorpio sun and Taurus moon.
The really extra weird fascinating thing is that both eclipses will last 84 minutes. Their total duration differes only by 4 seconds.
This is the most balanced pair of lunar eclipses in 430 years.
