When did the last full lunar eclipse occur?
A February 2021
B May 2022
C November 2022
The last total lunar eclipse occurred May 15-16 of this year and coincided with a supermoon, which happens when the moon’s orbit is at its closest point to Earth, or perigee. The eclipse was referred to as the ‘super flower blood moon’ and was the longest-lasting lunar eclipse visible in North America since 1989. While there are at least two partial lunar eclipses a year, two full ones are unusual. In the 20th century, there were a total of 62 total lunar eclipses. After tonight, the next total lunar eclipse will be in March 2025.
The correct answer is May 2022.
