1st Lunar Eclipse of 2023 Blacks Out Entire Flower Moon in Strange Photos

Skywatchers watching the full moon this month could see the first lunar eclipse of 2023.

A penumbral lunar eclipse of the full flower moon occurred on May 5, 2023 and will be visible for much of the Eastern Hemisphere and Antarctica. This type of lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon enters the outer part of Earth’s shadow called the penumbra. Although these eclipses are not as dramatic as a total or partial lunar eclipse, they provide sky watchers with an opportunity to visualize the astronomical alignment of the Sun, Earth, and Moon in real time.
