What is super blood wolf moon eclipse of 2019?

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the wolf moon received its name because it "appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages".

The entire event, which includes total as well as partial lunar eclipse will reportedly last for three and a half hours. It is scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m.

The moon will be in eclipse starting at about 7:30 p.m. Denver time. This phase is extremely subtle and hard to see.

During this process, some sunlight is filtered through the Earth's atmosphere, reflecting onto the moon to give a red appearance.

During the eclipse, sunlight is refracted by the earth's atmosphere and reaches the moon's surface as it bends around the earth's surface.

The blue colour of the sky is caused because the molecules in the air scatter the light at the blue end of the spectrum, while the light at the red end of the spectrum passes along.

The moment of greatest eclipse, when the moon is deepest in Earth's shadow, will occur at 12:16 a.m. EST (9:16 p.m. PST).

Mr Curran said the expression Blood Moon gained popularity in 2013 when two Christian pastors coined the term in a book describing an upcoming "lunar tetrad" of eclipses in apocalyptic terms. The moon's orbit is, of course, not perfectly balanced. The close passes are called perigee. At apogee (the most distant part), the moon is 252,000 miles (405,500 kilometers) away.

Partial lunar eclipses also often take place, in which the Earth only obscures part of the sun's light from hitting the moon.

The moon is then "Super" because it is at its closest point to Earth.

Unlike a solar eclipse, the lunar eclipse is safe to view with a pair of binoculars or can be seen with the naked eye.

According to TimeandDate.com, the first full moon of the year is known as the "Wolf Moon" and is named after howling wolves.

This eclipse has been referred to as a "supermoon". Earth, of course, is tilted on its axis.

But what makes the moon turn red? "We have this wonderful alignment; the sun, the Earth and the moon".

Hladiuk says Sunday's show will be the last one for some time, so he encourages everyone to go out and try to get a look.

The math is a headache, but these moments are very predictable.

The moon, Earth and sun will line up this weekend for the only total lunar eclipse this year and next.

People in the eastern side of North America will have the best view, but it will be visible from coast to coast, and the duration of totality will be longer than usual - just over one hour.
