Super Blood Wolf Moon

We Will Witness Super Blood Wolf Moon On January 2019

One of our favorite topics is total lunar eclipse, and this time we will speak about Super Blood Wolf Moon 2019. A lunar eclipse happens when the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned with Earth between the other two. A lunar eclipse can occur only on the night of a full moon. The type and length of a lunar eclipse depend on the Moon’s proximity to either node of its orbit.

The next year we will have an opportunity to witness Super Blood Wolf Moon, a total lunar eclipse that will take place on January 20. If you remember, this year we have witnessed Super Blue Moon which was really impressive. About Super Blue Moon you can read here “Blue Super Moon On January 31”. So, you have a chance to see Super Blood Wolf Moon from North America.

According to www.slashgear.com “The event will take place on the night of January 20 leading into January 21, depending on the viewer’s time zone and which part of the eclipse they’re seeing. The event will start at 9:36PM and the total eclipse will start at 11:41PM in the Eastern time zone, ultimately ending a little before 3AM ET”.

The first Full Moon of the year is named after howling wolves. In some cultures, it was known as Old Moon, Ice Moon, Snow Moon, and the Moon after Yule. The Earth’s shadow will cause the moon to have a dark red color, that is why the “blood” part of the name.

So, those who live in the US and Canada they will have a chance to witness this specific eclipse, assuming the skies are clear. This is the last total lunar eclipse that will be clearly visible in North America until May 2022.
