‘Super blood wolf moon eclipse’ worth howling about if weather clears

Christmas'Hippo Asteroid Is Buzzing Earth Its Closest Flyby in 400 Years Wolf Blood Super Moon will be visible from Northern Ireland

"During a total lunar eclipse, the moon appears red and that's because the light is being refracted through the atmosphere of Earth".

Sullivan, who objects to the recent trend of naming ordinary full moons and celestial events with words like "super" and "blood", said there is, however, a legitimately interesting lunar event coming: a total eclipse. Your eyes are just fine to see the show. Unlike solar eclipses, the lunar varieties are safe to watch. If you are reading this from outside the Chattanooga community, go to timeanddate.com and type in your location. The "Super Moon" refers to a full moon that occurs when the moon is the closest distance to the earth.

Things are going to get a little weird in the night sky the evening of Sunday, Jan. 20 (or the early morning of Monday, Jan. 21 in Europe), but don't worry.

The blood moon comes overnight. For a shadow, it will be quite bright: Before a potential audience of almost three billion people, the moon will gradually transform into a glowing copper-colored orb, tinted by sunlight bouncing off and passing through the air in our planet's dense atmosphere. Viewed from the US east coast the moon will enter Earth's umbra just a few minutes after 10:30 P.M., with the full lunar disk falling wholly into shadow for slightly over an hour, beginning at 11:41 P.M.

Andy Clark took this image of a lunar eclipse over Ashford in 2015.

Earth's own thick atmosphere causes the spectacular colours on the lunar disc. Sunlight shines through our dust filled air, and bends the sunlight towards the red part of the spectrum resulting in the moon glowing reddish - the same reason we see the Sun turn shades of red during sunsets.

"During totality, which will last 62 minutes, the moon will appear to glow like an eerie ball - which to the eye, and especially in binoculars and small telescopes - will appear nearly three dimensional", Joe Rao, an instructor at New York's Hayden Planetarium, wrote in a Space.com column.

What's the best way to view the super blood wolf eclipse?

Lastly, the January full moon is known as a Wolf Moon, in Native American tradition. It will be the first full moon of the year (a "wolf moon"). The last time New Yorkers could gaze so high at a totally eclipsed moon was in 1797, when John Adams was president; the next opportunity won't come until 2113. The moon doesn't disappear from sight but does become "10,000 or so times dimmer than usual".
