El Malpais National Monument (New Mexico) will have a Lunar Eclipse Part on May 15, Sunday, from 8 PM to 11 PM at its El Malpais Visitor Center.

The full eclipse will take place from 9:29 PM to 10:53 PM. During the blood moon lunar eclipse, the earth will perfectly sit still between the sun and the full moon. The Earth’s shadow will fall on the moon’s surface, creating a red effect known as the blood moon, according to a news release.

Gates will open at 8 PM and close at 11 PM. Visitors can drop by anytime during the eclipse or stay for the entire duration. The Western National Parks Association bookstore will also be open from 8 PM to 10 PM.

The park encourages visitors to bring lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy the eclipse comfortably. They will also have telescopes set up to better view the moon during the eclipse, but they also recommend visitors bring their own telescopes or binoculars.

The event will take place in the El Malpais Visitor Center parking lot located at 1900 E Santa Fe Ave, Grants, NM 87020. Here is a complete timeline of the event:
