The 16 May 2022 Total Supermoon Eclipse: a live, international event
Next 16 May, the Moon will offer us a superb total eclipse. The Moon will also be close to its perigee, a so-called “Supermoon”. We will bring the eclipse to you live, thanks to an international team.

Next 16 May 2022, the Flower Moon will offer us a superb total eclipse, visible from Europe and the Americas. As in the past, the Virtual Telescope Project will partner with some great astro-imagers there, to bring to you the stunning beauty of such a unique event. Yes, it will be somewhat special: the 16 May 2022 Full Moon will be both a “Supermoon” (the first of the year, so one of the largest largest Full Moons of 2022) and a “Blood Moon”.
