A total lunar eclipse will not be repeated until 2025. Some areas of Peru will be able to directly appreciate this event.
The morning of Tuesday, November 8 will be unique because we will witness the last total lunar eclipse of the year.
From 3 in the morning Peru time, a large part of the world will be able to appreciate this phenomenon that is repeated for the second time in the year and that will not be seen again until 2025.
From where can you see the total lunar eclipse and at what times?
The total lunar eclipse can be seen in all its phases in North America, New Zealand, Pacific Ocean islands, the east coast of Australia, most of Japan, the eastern regions of Russia, South Korea, East and Northeast of China.
On the other hand, a partial lunar eclipse will only be visible in northeastern Europe, Asia, Australia, much of South America, the Pacific, the Atlantic, the Indian Ocean, the Arctic, and Antarctica.
Schedules for Latin America:
- Peru: 03.02 a.m.
- Colombia: 03.02 a.m.
- Ecuador: 03.02 a.m.
- Mexico: 04.02 a.m.

WATCH LIVE the total lunar eclipse 2022
The cosmic show will start this Tuesday, November 8 at 03:02 PM PE.
The partial eclipse will be visible from 04:09 and the total eclipse will begin at 05:16 and end at 06:41.
The shadow eclipse will end at 07:48 a.m. and the penumbral one at 08:54 a.m.
You can see the event from the internet at the following link:
According to Alphonse Sterling, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, total lunar eclipses occur about once every year and a half on average.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth casts a complete shadow, called the umbra, on the Moon . Earth’s shadow is classified into two parts: the umbra, the innermost part of the shadow where direct sunlight is completely blocked, and the penumbra, the outermost part of the shadow where light is partially blocked.
During the event, the Moon and the Sun are on opposite sides of the Earth.
People interested in looking at the phenomenon will be able to do so without the need for special protection. Of course, it will depend a lot on the clouds so that you can appreciate the sky without problems.
Blood moon: a unique event
A characteristic of a total lunar eclipse is the red hue of the Moon during totality. The red color occurs due to the refraction, filtering, and scattering of light by the Earth’s atmosphere. The scattering is a phenomenon called Rayleigh scattering, named after the 19th-century British physicist Lord Rayleigh .
Rayleigh scattering is also the reason for red sunrises and sunsets. Sunlight collides with gases in the Earth’s atmosphere and, due to its shorter wavelength, blue light is filtered out, but red light is not easily scattered due to its longer wavelength.
Some of that red light is refracted, or bent, as it passes through Earth’s atmosphere and ends up shining on the Moon in a ghostly red light. The degree of reddening of a fully eclipsed Moon can be influenced by atmospheric conditions resulting from volcanic eruptions, fires, and dust storms.
