    The total lunar eclipse on the 'flower full moon' eclipse was visible in the UK and US.

    May's moon is called a Flower Moon in honour of the plants that often bloom in late spring.



    The Earth is constantly rotating around the Sun, and the Moon is constantly rotating around the Earth.

    Sometimes all three can align, placing the Earth directly between the Sun and the Moon in a straight line.

    It means the Moon is in the darkest part of Earth's shadow – the "umbra".

    And due to convenient sizing and distancing of all three objects, no sunlight can directly reach the Moon.

    However, some sunlight is refracted by Earth's atmosphere, making the Moon appear reddish – hence the name "Blood Moon".

    Lunar eclipses typically last just a few hours, and can be viewed from anywhere on the night side of Earth.
