The moon entered the penumbra last night and then entered the shadow of the earth. This phenomenon was observed from most parts of the planet, including Guadeloupe. Back in the picture, this amazing scene and the description of the copper color taken by our satellite.
Guadeloupe is one of the regions where a full lunar eclipse will be visible from Sunday night, May 15 to Monday, May 16, 2022.

Many were late waking up to see this relatively rare event, where the satellite was in perfect alignment with the earth and the sun. This happens two or five times a year, in whole or in part.
This time, I was able to watch the show from 9:32 pm to 2:51 am.

The moon that has entered the shadow of the earth has taken on a beautiful orange color. Why?
Christoph Stephen, an animator at the “Archibel des Sciences” Society, brought us some details before the eclipse. This statement by Michael Bastide and Christian Donku can be found at:
