“Bad Moon Rising”: Super Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse Light up Skies Around the Globe

Eraldo Peres/AP

The May full moon, known as the flower moon, coincided with it being at its closest to the Earth during its orbit, making it appear larger and brighter. May’s supermoon also coincides with a lunar eclipse in which the moon will turn red, but that will be visible only in parts of South America, Australia and south-east Asia. This celestial incident, known as super flower blood moon, is the only full lunar eclipse of this year.
