The moon will transform colors Sunday night during a 'super flower blood moon' eclipse

Lunar eclipse 2022

Get ready for a sky spectacle this weekend.

A "super flower blood moon" lunar eclipse will be coming to the night sky on Sunday. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is between the full moon and the sun.

During the eclipse, the moon will receive only sunlight bent through the Earth's atmosphere, and will change color over the minutes, from gray to pink to orange to red.

The Earth's shadow covers the moon, which often has a red color, hence the blood moon nickname. Although it's completely in the shadow of Earth, a bit of reddish sunlight still reaches the moon.

The eclipse will begin when the Earth's shadow appears on the moon at 10:27 p.m. EDT Sunday evening. Over the course of an hour, the shadow will creep across the moon, plunging the lunar surface into darkness.
