A 'super blood wolf moon eclipse' is happening this weekend

Super Blood Wolf Moon 2019 UK

The moon will start to enter the earth's shadow just after 2.30am and the maximum eclipse will happen just before 5.15am.

The Super Moon eclipse on September 28, 2015 as seen from Avon, Conn. And, similarly, everyone on the night side of Earth who has the full moon in the sky during the eclipse will see the same sequence of events happening at the same moment in time.

Look up into the night sky on Sunday and: if it is clear: you may witness the so-called "Super Blood Wolf Moon" total lunar eclipse, which will take a star turn across the continental United States during prime time for viewing. This is the beginning of the partial eclipse.

On Sunday evening, January 20, 2019, there will be a very nice total lunar eclipse (where the Earth's shadow darkens the full moon) visible in all of North America. But approximately once a year, as the moon travels along its tilted axis, it ends up directly behind Earth and is thrust into near darkness. The lunar eclipse is for everyone!

The total eclipse will begin in the Central time zone at 10:41 p.m. and reach totality at 11:13 p.m., ending at 11:43 p.m.

The sun, the moon, the stars, and the celebration of the late Martin Luther King are inching towards a flawless alignment for this Sunday night. Many Christians believe scripture indicates a Blood Moon is a sign from God regarding the return of Christ.

Lastly, the January full moon is known as a Wolf Moon, in Native American tradition. Weather forecasts predict harsh weather in some areas, but there will be live-stream options available. You will be able to see the eclipse with the naked eye, but if you have binoculars, take them out of the drawer for a better view. Sunday's eclipse will nearly coincide with that perigee, meaning that the moon won't just be redder than usual, it will also look a tiny bit wider. Farther south, the moon will appear even higher.

The viewing in front of Union Station begins at 9 p.m. and is free and open to the public. For a shadow, it will be quite bright: Before a potential audience of almost three billion people, the moon will gradually transform into a glowing copper-colored orb, tinted by sunlight bouncing off and passing through the air in our planet's dense atmosphere.

Amateur astronomers can get a stellar view of this weekend's upcoming Super Blood Wolf Moon thanks to some help from the pros at the Rothney Observatory.
