The List of Countries with Views of May 2023 Lunar Eclipse

One of the most anticipated astronomical events is set to happen this May 2023. The first penumbral lunar eclipse will occur on May 5 and will last until dawn on the 6th. This phenomenon has generated much expectations, and many want to know if it can be seen in their country.

A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth stands between the Sun and the Moon. When the three align, our planet casts a cone of shadow that darkens its natural satellite, dimming it, and may even turn the lunar surface a reddish color.

The penumbral lunar eclipse of May 5, 2023, will be fully visible in Asia and Australia. It will also be seen in Africa and Eastern and Central Europe when the Moon rises or sets. Unfortunately, it cannot be viewed in continents such as America because the local time in the countries that make up this time differs from UTC time, since that in said nations, it will be day.

Fortunately, there are many ways to witness it through applications and different live broadcasts. For example, you can download the free Sky Tonight application on your device. Once installed, open the calendar window by touching its icon, which is at the bottom of the screen. Select the month, May, and tap the date, 5. Below the calendar, you’ll see the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse event. Tap it, and you will see the visibility from your location under “Global Visibility.”

The next lunar eclipse of 2023 will be on October 28. It will be a partial lunar eclipse visible in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, North America, north and eastern South America. Also, an annular solar eclipse will occur on October 14, 2023.

In conclusion, while it’s unfortunate that some countries cannot view the upcoming penumbral lunar eclipse, they can still witness it via application and live broadcasts. Observing such astronomical events brings us closer to our universe and reminds us of its wonders.
