It may be helpful to get up early on Monday, it is similar every year or two.

On Monday, May 16, a full lunar eclipse will begin at dawn, which will only be partially visible from Hungary before sunset.

We can see the beginning of the partial eclipse phase at 4:27 AM on Monday, so it’s worth getting up early. When the moon rests on the horizon between west and southwest at 5:07 a.m., a total lunar eclipse that occurs between 5:29 a.m. and 6:11 a.m. – 6:53 p.m. Writes the prospectus for the Svábhegy Observatory.

Although the full moon faces the sun every month, due to the slight inclination of the lunar orbit, our Earth does not block sunlight, so we can enjoy the full moon month after month, they write. Every year or two, the sun, Earth, and Moon fall in exactly one line, and the Earth’s wide cone of shadows blocks out sunlight. This is when a lunar eclipse occurs.
