'Super Blood Wolf Moon' to get star billing in weekend lunar eclipse

The 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' will be visible over Orlando this weekend 'Super blood wolf moon' eclipse to darken skies

The moon appears orange or red, the result of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere.

The total lunar eclipse of January 2019 promises to be a spectacle to behold, and may be visible to millions across North and South America, weather permitting.

By the time the total eclipse starts at 11:41 p.m., the view should be clear with only spotty upper level clouds, says Scott Krentz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service based out of Greenville-Spartanburg.

Super Blood Wolf Moon sounds like a lot, and it is, but it's also better than big-red-moon-in January-covered-by-shadow, which is basically what all that means.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is positioned between the sun and the moon, casting the moon completely in the Earth's shadow and giving it an orangish, "bloody" look. "Front row center" belongs to those who live near and along the U.S. East Coast, where the totally eclipsed moon will climb to extraordinary heights.

Don't be afraid to look up Sunday night.

But, if you have hand warmers and a large hat and scarf, you can stick around for the moon's full dance through Earth's shadow. "People ask me all the time, what's your favorite thing about lunar eclipses?"

1 Spend your Sunday at Lowell Observatory for a total lunar eclipse after hours celebration. As you're probably aware, eclipses happen when the moon, Earth, and sun are all aligned. She says this event is significant because there have only been three super wolf blood moons in the past century.

The "blood" part of the name refers to the lunar eclipse. Brutally cold air will arrive later Sunday into Monday night.

Finally, full moons are given monthly names, and this one happens to be the "wolf" moon.

The good news is you do not have to go far to see it!

Eclipse totality will end by 5.43am GMT and partial eclipsing will begin.

The Planetarium at Union Station will offer an enhanced viewing of the super wolf blood moon on Sunday night.

First contact with the Earth's shadow is at 6:36 p.m. This is called as a "Supermoon" because during this the Moon is at its closest distance to the Earth in the orbit and this point is known as the "perigee".

The fact that it will be a super moon is because the moon's perigree, or closest approach, technically occurs at 2:59 p.m. Monday, when it's only 222,042 miles away. The moon will be at its bloodiest, most super and wolfiest just after midnight.

"A little bit of sunlight is refracted by the Earth's atmosphere... bending around the edges of the Earth" before reaching the moon, causing the reddish tint.

Edmontonians will have the chance to view the lunar eclipse in style Sunday evening while celebrating with space-themed activities at the Telus World of Science.
