May’s total lunar eclipse watched by Earth-observing satellites

Satellites tracking the total lunar eclipse in May revealed dramatic and uneven temperature changes across the surface of the moon.

On May 16, skywatchers were treated to the longest total lunar eclipse in three decades. Meanwhile, two satellites — the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) on the Landsat 8 satellite, and TIRS-2 on Landsat 9 — observed the lunar treat from space.
