The Earth is witnessing an astronomical phenomenon that lasts five hours
The National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research in Egypt announced that the globe will witness an astronomical phenomenon that will take more than 5 hours from its beginning to its end.
And the official Middle East News Agency quoted the head of the institute, Dr. Gad Al-Qadi, as saying that the globe will witness on Monday, May 16, a total lunar eclipse.
He explained that the eclipse, in all its phases, from its beginning to its end, takes approximately 5 hours and 19 minutes, and the Earth's shadow will cover approximately 141.4% of the moon's surface.
He confirmed the full moon (Badr Shawwal) on the same day (Monday, May 16) and its luminosity will reach 99.9%, pointing out that the moon will appear to us as a full moon in the period from May 15 to 17, when the naked eye cannot distinguish the rotation of the entire moon disk.
He added that this full moon is known to American tribes with names that indicate spring, so they call it (the flower moon, and the corn moon), where the corn harvest is at this time of the year, and sometimes they call it (the milk moon).
He also indicated that the time of the full moon is the best time of the month to observe the terrain, volcanic craters and meteorite craters on the moon's surface using binoculars and small telescopes.
