On January 20, 2019, a rare and a very interesting celestial event called the Super Blood Wolf Moon will grace the skies.
Astronomy fanatics are in for a treat January 20, when Earth will pass between the sun and full moon to create a total lunar eclipse that will turn the moon's silvery shine into a blood-red glow. It's being called the super blood wolf moon eclipse - and you should be able to see it North America. A supermoon is a point during the month when the Moon is closest to Earth and it appears about 14 percent larger in the sky. Of the 87 total lunar eclipses set to occur in this century, only 28 will match up with supermoons, Anna Ross, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, London, told Newsweek. The marvel will likewise be obvious from South America and parts of western Europe, and the moon will wear its blood red shading for around 60 minutes.
