Between the 15th and 16th, there was an astronomical phenomenon beautifying the sky: a full lunar eclipse, which could be seen at all stages. According to Instituto Climatempo, the phenomenon can be seen throughout Latin America, including Espírito Santo.
According to Gaturamo – Astronomical Observatory of the Federal University of Espírito Santo (Ufes), the state of Espírito Santo is in the region of ideal astronomical conditions for total visibility of the event – but It is the weather conditions that will, in fact, mean that anyone in the country will be able to enjoy the event will be in every region.

The lunar eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon, casting its shadow half or all of its natural satellite.
The frequency of the lunar eclipse occurs in one year to one year, but it usually occurs at least twice a year, which is when the celestial body is in harmony. The duration of an eclipse can range from a few minutes to 3 or 4 hours.
What is the best time to look?
Climatempo explains that, to enjoy the full lunar eclipse, you need to sleep on the evening of Sunday (15th) and the morning of Monday (16th). In Brazil, the event will start on May 15, at 11:27 pm and run until 3:50 am on May 16, 2022.
According to Professor Marcos Calil, the onset of eclipse is a special time.
“This is the time when the moon will move from the penumbra to Earth’s umbra. It is at this time that the moon begins to look “cut off” and can be easily seen everywhere in Brazil. Even in cities with serious problems. That is when people start paying more attention to what is happening. “
The peak of the total lunar eclipse will occur at the beginning of May 16, at 01:11 a.m., Monday morning. It is here that the moon will be in full on the Earth’s shadow cone, very close to the center of the Earth’s shadow cone.
Professor Calil notes that at the height of the eclipse we will have the moon with a dark face. Unlike many people think, the Moon does not disappear from the sky, but its bright red color, even turning dark brown, makes it very difficult to capture images and see some selenographic content. . Selenography is a subdivision of astronomy that studies the surface of the moon.
Cloud problems …
Climatempo reiterated that the first analysis, yet to be detailed, showed that the rapid transition of the front cold from south to south Brazil, the fact of May 15 and 16, 2022.
Areas of fog and rain from the cold front can affect the visibility of all lunar eclipse in the areas of Paraná, Mato Grosso do Sul, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Rio De Janeiro and Espírito Santo.
The association explains that the term “Blood Moon” refers to the use of the red face of the moon in the eclipse today. Pastors John Hagee and Mark Biltz were responsible for listing the information that was published in the media. They are considered a spiritual significance for all eclipses of the moon in the lunar tetrad that occurs in 2014 – 2015.
Influences of the moon in the earth
According to GOA, by Ufes, there are many influences that the moon makes on the earth. “Some are exoteric, mystical religions, without evidence. But of all, without an unbeliever, the theme is the ebb and flow of the tides”, he explains.
“Just to get the idea of this force, which created mangroves all over the world, the moon uses twice as much energy from the Earth’s surface than the sun, thousands of times more than the moon. , and have the same diameter of the clear. the sky “, says Marcio Malacarne, president of GOA
Malacarne suggests that another feature of the moon is respect for its colors. The red color that the moon uses during the eclipse messes with our brains and many animals, because this is one of the favorite colors of the brain, so the color boards used these colors.
“And this color change can also make us love more. This is my way of thinking (laughs)”, he joked.
Malacarne says this is one of the largest moons in ten years, seen entirely by Brazil and Espírito Santo and even the moon closest to the perigee, the closest to Earth in its orbit . This makes the moon appear 30% brighter and 14% larger.
“Some call this phenomenon the Super Moon. With the Eclipsed Moon, the Moon turns red due to the impact and explosion of radiation from the Earth’s atmosphere that reaches the Moon. Others call it the reddening of the Blood Moon, but it is nothing more than a month. Full Lunar Eclipse, where the position of the moon enters the cone “, added
Another eclipse like this only in 2029
According to Gaturamo, November 2nd of this year we will have another Lunar Eclipse, but it will not be like this from Brazil. Only in western Brazil it can be seen in part, before the moon sets.
Not in Espírito Santo and on the coast of the Northeast can be seen eclipse November. Another extension of this is in Espírito Santo, and in Brazil, only on June 26, 2029.
The result will last about 5h19 minutes from the penumbra. And the shadow part 3h27min (the sight one).
Attendance at Ufes Astronomical Observatory
GOA will be open to the public from 8pm on Sunday (15th) until at least 12:30 am on the 16th, when the moon will be in most eclipsed, if requested.
