This May’s Upcoming Super Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse 2021

May’s Super Blood Moon, also called the Flower Moon, comes with a total Lunar Eclipse on Wednesday May 26, 2021.

You are looking at the May's Blood Flower Moon. It's the closest the Moon will have reached in 2021. It was very big to the eye and very orange/red in color.

 

Super Blood Moon Rising

If you’re in Wisconsin and want to watch and/or photograph the Flower Blood Moon rising, it’s scheduled to appear above the horizon at 7:51pm. This will be a spectacular show because it will be the largest and brightest full moon of the year! I’m also hoping this eclipse will dazzle us with the beautiful deep orange/red color that it’s so famous for.

Flower Full Moon

The name of May’s Full Moon is the Flower Moon. ¬†As we all know here in the states, it’s finally spring time. In Wisconsin, the flowers have been blooming and the birds have been building their nests for a few weeks now.

Other names for this May’s Super Blood Moon are the Budding Moon, the Leaf Budding Moon, or the Planting Moon.

Lunar Eclipse

The Total Lunar Eclipse will be a Global event. But here in Wisconsin, this May’s Super Blood Moon will only be a Partial Lunar Eclipse.

It begins Wed. May 26, 2021 at 3:47am and its maximum is 5:21am. So, be ready to be up with the birds!

The duration will be 1 hour, 37 minutes. This partial eclipse will be a quick one. You’ll need to be up high on a hill to see it fully because the moon will be very low over the horizon.

The last few years of Lunar Eclipses we had perfect weather without a cloud in the sky. This year may be a little more challenging, as we’ve had many days of clouds and rain. So, if you’re a Moon gazer and Lunar watcher like me, I wish you all the best of luck with your night and early morning viewing!
