One of the most spectacular celestial phenomena of the year, the “Blood Moon”, also called “Flower Moon”, the lunar eclipse, dazzled the world this Monday, May 16, 2022.
The event offered a dazzling, “bloody” spectacle in the sky where observers saw a moon totally eclipsed by Earth’s shadow and turning red (a phenomenon known as a “blood moon”). Here are some of the best photos of the 2022 Super Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse from around the world:
