  • Super Blood Wolf Moon 2019 UK

A rare lunar eclipse entitled the "Super Blood Wolf Moon" will appear across the world, including the United States, this Sunday.

A so-called "blood moon" seen during a total lunar eclipse in western Germany, on September 28, 2015. It's when the moon will begin to enter the outer part of the Earth's shadow, called the penumbra. Full moons were traditionally given names by Native American tribes to keep track of seasons.

"This naming of every moon caught on in the last 10 years and it's driving me insane", he said, "but a total lunar eclipse is actually very interesting to see".

The rest of Europe, as well as Africa, will have partial viewing before the moon sets.

Between the night of January 20 and 21 the moon will pass through the Earth's shadow, casting a gloomy red glow over the planet.

"If you are lucky enough to be able to see the whole event, you can get a mental picture of the size of the Earth's shadow at the distance of the moon by watching the moon move against background stars". "It not only is a supermoon and it's a total eclipse, but the total eclipse also lasts pretty long".

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. It is the first total eclipse visible in North America in three years. The moon's colour can vary significantly from one eclipse to the next and nobody can predict what the next one will look like. Sunday's observatory event is all-ages and doors open at 8:30 p.m. Ticket price is by donation only. For the next hour, the moon will dim slightly.

Sometimes the eclipsed Moon is a deep red colour, nearly disappearing from view, and sometimes it can be quite bright. Most colors on the spectrum are blocked, but red usually makes it through, effectively projecting all of Earth's sunrises and sunsets onto the moon's surface like a celestial cinema.

This is when the "blood" part occurs, when the moon becomes a reddish-orange ball.

In recent years, a number of blood moons have captured global attention, causing some to speculate about a possible connection to prophecy and the End Times.

The Super Blood Wolf Moon will be cool to watch literally and figuratively. But the weather forecast for much of the US doesn't look good.
