Don't miss the lunar eclipse tonight

On Sunday, May 15, the full Moon will pass through the shadow of the Earth, which will lead to a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse will be visible from North and South America on May 15; and Africa and Europe.

There is a possibility that this eclipse will be affected by the eruption of the Tonga volcano on January 15. During a lunar eclipse, most of the light illuminating the moon passes through the Earth's stratosphere, where it turns red due to scattering. 

Volcanic ash from Tonga reached a height of 30 kilometers, deep into the stratosphere, with a total mass of 400 million kilograms. The volcano's lingering exhaust can obscure the eclipse, making it a deeper dark red than usual.
