How to watch the super blood wolf moon lunar eclipse this weekend

According to the Farmer's Almanac, the term wolf moon comes from Indigenous culture, as the moon appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages.

The "Wolf" moon is the name given to January's full moon.

The best time to view this Super Wolf Blood Moon undergo the eclipse will be after 9:30 p.m. Sunday, January 20th; it is at this time that the moon begins to pass into Earth's shadow.

Sunday's eclipse is a "super" blood moon because of the specific time in its orbit when it's closer to Earth. You can head over to a place where you can clearly see the Moon during a total lunar eclipse, and you are good to go.

"The moon moves into the shadow of the earth, which means we see the surface shrink away". The moon will appear red during the "totality" phase as a result of scattered sunlight rebounding from the Earth's atmosphere.

The event, Kanipe said, unfolds in stages.

This will come in handy because the total eclipse begins at 11:41 p.m.

For those interested in more information or want to have the best chance at the ideal view, they can try the Rothney Observatory.

The next total lunar eclipse visible from Earth will occur on May 26, 2021. A supermoon is a full moon that occurs during that time.

On the evening of January 20, the Full Moon rises as the sun sets.

Lunar eclipse occurs when the moon appears darkened as it passes into the earth's shadow and occurs only when the sun, earth and moon were exactly aligned with the earth between the two.

It will only be visible within the most northern and western parts of Europe, including the whole of the United Kingdom and Portugal, and parts of north western France and Spain.

Kanipe threw some shade, however, on the "super" aspect of the event's billing.

According to a science education website, pollution spewed by Anak Krakatau's eruption in Indonesia may darken an already red moon during this eclipse, making it more colorful than usual.

On Sunday night into Monday morning, stargazers will have front-row seats to one of nature's spectacular event, a phenomenon known as a "blood moon".

"Sorry, but I don't know why this aspect gets people excited, as it's not easily noticeable".

A few rain/sleet/snow showers will be possible along the front, but they will be brief.

The moon will be partially eclipsed between 3.33am and 6.50am and from 4.41am until 5.43am stargazers will be able to see the Supermoon lunar eclipse - called the Wolf Moon.

7:12 p.m.-Greatest point of the eclipse.

The entire eclipse will be visible from New Mexico, and the moon will be high in the sky.
