Wolf moon set to light up the night sky

  • The 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' will be visible over Orlando this weekend

Adding to the excitement is that this eclipse is occurring as the full moon reaches perigee - its closest it can to Earth - which is commonly referred to as a supermoon. You probably won't be able to notice the difference in the size or the brightness of the moon, but it is noteworthy enough as an astronomical event.

This moon will be of the "super" variety because it will be closer to earth, making it appear bigger than usual. Only when that coincides with a full moon or a new moon is it called a supermoon.

"Right now it looks like it's full cloud cover with a mixture of snow and whatever else New England can throw at us", Brothers said. The latter happens during the day, so can't be observed, and is therefore of little interest to moongazers.

The Super Moon eclipse on September 28, 2015 as seen from Avon, Conn. By some definitions, it's the first of three supermoons in 2019.

But, if you have hand warmers and a large hat and scarf, you can stick around for the moon's full dance through Earth's shadow.

"There will be other total lunar eclipses between 2019 and 2032 but they will happen as the Moon sets or rises from Ireland thus spoiling the view", said editor of Astronomy Ireland magazine, David Moore.

In her request to Trump , Pelosi recommended that Trump deliver written remarks to Congress as Jefferson once did. Some posted photos of their empty earnings statements on social media as a rallying cry to end the shutdown.

According to NASA, if the skies are clear the eclipse will be visible across North America, South America, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Britain, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, France and Spain.

As NASA explains, Earth casts a red shadow because of how our atmosphere scatters light.

What is the total lunar eclipse? The reason for their rarity is the moon's orbit, which is tilted some 5 degrees off-kilter from Earth's orbital plane, or ecliptic; if the two were perfectly aligned, a total lunar eclipse would occur monthly, each time the moon was full.

The Planetarium at Union Station will offer an enhanced viewing of the super wolf blood moon on Sunday night.

The total eclipse will begin in the Central time zone at 10:41 p.m. and reach totality at 11:13 p.m., ending at 11:43 p.m. The super blood wolf moon won't get you, and Florida's weather outlook seems like you won't get rained out.

"If you think about sunset and sunrise, the sunlight is traveling through the atmosphere and you get the nice red colors", Jolliff said. Look to the west after dusk from a (very) dark sky site. The last supermoon/lunar eclipse occurred in 1982. No one knows for sure, but that skewed orbit is likely a relic from eons ago, when the moon first formed in the fiery aftermath of a collision between our embryonic planet and a Mars-size interloper.

The Super Blood Wolf Moon will be cool to watch literally and figuratively.
