What time does the lunar, “super flower blood-red moon,” eclipse start tonight?


A total lunar eclipse, also known as the blood-red moon, will be seen on May 15, but what time does the eclipse start tonight?

This year’s first lunar eclipse is finally here and people can have a gala time watching it. As per CBC, the rare phenomenon has been given the name on the basis of how the moon would appear to the people.

That is, when the moon glides the Earth’s inner and starts to reflect a shade of red, it is known as the “blood moon.” Meanwhile, when the moon is the closest to the Earth it starts reflecting a lighter shade and is referred to as a “supermoon lunar eclipse.”
