On May 15 at 9:32 p.m. the lunar eclipse began. At 10:27 p.m. the moon entered into partial eclipse. The reddish hue of totality lasted from 11:29 p.m. through 12:53 a.m. 

When the moon falls within the darkest part of the earths shadow, called the umbra, the reddish hue becomes visible.

The first record of a total lunar eclipse comes from China Jan. 29 in 1136 BC. The year 2022 has four eclipses, two solar and two lunar. The next total lunar eclipse that will be visible for us to see will be Nov. 7 and 8.
