The New Year brings beauty on the skies.
EarthSky Communications, Inc., a Texas-based science focused online site, the January 21 event is also expected to be a supermoon, or "new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee, the moon's closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit".
So what exactly is a super blood wolf moon eclipse?
According to Space.com, the full moon will become a red-orange color as it enters the Earth's shadow. Since it comes close to the planet, it looks bigger in size than on other days. No, it's not a death metal band - it's a rare lunar phenomenon that will occur on January 20. It will occur from 9:36 pm EST (8:06 am IST) on January 20 and end at 2:48 am EST (1:18 pm IST) on January 21. It will as well be the first and last to occur across the winter skies of Northern America within the next three years.
This is also one of the few times where North America is the chief beneficiary of the lunar event, with people in South America and parts of western Europe also seeing it. Nearly all the people who are living in Canada and United States will get an awesome chance to witness such a particular eclipse which will be followed by the clear skies. Asian subcontinent will not be able to see the eclipse at all.
A full moon taking place in January or the first full moon of the year has been called a Wolf Moon since colonial times.
Some tribes named full moons based on the behavior of the plants, animals, or weather during that month.
The name was coined because wolves tend to howl a lot during their breeding season in January and February.
The total eclipse will begin at 11:12 p.m. So if you don't want to miss out on this one!
