'Super blood wolf moon' eclipse to darken skies

The Planetarium at Union Station will offer an enhanced viewing of the super wolf blood moon on Sunday night. The National Weather Service's outlook for Sunday night calls for cloud cover over a wide swath of the Pacific Northwest, so if you're a Seattleite, your best bet for seeing the eclipse may well be to watch it online.

This moon will be of the "super" variety because it will be closer to earth, making it appear bigger than usual.

Sunday's is the first of three supermoons in a row, appearing next in February and then March.

"That just has to do with how close the moon is to the Earth", he said. January supposedly brings the Wolf Moon because Native Americans and early European settlers associated the sight with hungry wolves howling outside their villages. "That's just the moon itself". This is why some folks call a total lunar eclipse a "blood moon".

On the evening of Sunday, January 20, the most stunning celestial light show over the continental US will actually be a shadow-the Earth's, in fact, sweeping across the nearside of the moon in a total lunar eclipse.

During totality, the moon will look red because of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere.

The moon rises the evening of January 30th, 2018 along the St. Petersburg waterfront.

Starting at around 7:34 p.m. PT or 10:34 p.m. ET Sunday, a partial eclipse will begin, with the full eclipse starting a little over an hour later.

"It will reach its max - so when it's most red and in the exact middle of the eclipse - will be 12:12 a.m. on Monday, the 21st".

The country is said to be employing "more sophisticated satellite operations" and is "probably testing on-orbit dual-use technologies" that could be applied to counterspace missions.

There are two types of supermoon: a full moon supermoon and a new moon supermoon.

Asia, Australia and New Zealand are out of luck. This will save you being out in the cold for hours on end. "It's looking like it will be around zero degrees if not in the negatives during the eclipse itself".

If you just want to see the thing, you can walk outside at 12 minutes past midnight on the U.S. East Coast (9:12 p.m. on the West Coast) and look up.

A total lunar eclipse will take place on Monday morning, and with clear skies predicted, it might be the only time Irish people can see one as clear for another 14 years.

Ancient Mesopotamians believed that a lunar eclipse was the result of seven demons attacking the Moon.

"You don't need any special equipment to see a lunar eclipse", Hayne said.

A partial eclipse will also be visible in lead up to the total eclipse and after it is completed. If you miss it this weekend, you'll have another chance in 2021. "And don't forget to turn off your lights because that really helps allow more objects to appear to your human eye". As the light passes through the atmosphere it gets bent toward the moon.

The color will also depend on how clear the atmosphere is across the globe, Nichols said.
