Anatomy of a Super Blood Wolf moon

How to see the last 'super blood wolf moon' lunar eclipse for 18 years Don't Miss the 'Super Blood Moon' Eclipse This Weekend

During a total lunar eclipse, the Earth blocks the light from the sun, giving the moon's surface a red glow, which many refer to as a Blood Moon.

Weather forecasts predict harsh cold and a winter storm for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend throughout much of the U.S.so it may not be optimal conditions to be outside, but there will be live-stream options available to view the eclipse online.

The full effect of the blood moon will begin to be seen here at about at around 12:41 a.m., however effects of the event can be seen hours before.

A full moon in January is also known as a "wolf moon", as Native American tribes said wolves would howl outside villages during full moons at the beginning of the year.

A "super blood wolf moon" is drawing near, and no, it's not the latest steamy tome from the fevered imagination of novelist Anne Rice.

Bryn Davis, chairman of the Vectis Astronomical Society, based in Newchurch, said: "The lunar eclipse should be visible from all over the Island during the night of January 20/21".

Sky-watchers across the entire Western Hemisphere will be able to see all or part of the eclipse. The first took place on January 20, 2000, and the next one won't be seen until January 31, 2037. Also, a lunar eclipse only takes place when there is a full Moon. He said the lunar event will be visible to the naked eye - although binoculars can be useful for a closer look.

Those that miss this eclipse will need to wait until May 26, 2021, for the next opportunity to witness a total lunar eclipse.

For anyone who can't view Sunday's total lunar eclipse, they'll have to be patient because the next one isn't expected any time soon. We often think of the moon orbiting around the Earth in a ideal circle, but the reality is that the orbit is more elliptical in nature.

Lunar eclipses don't happen often, because normally the moon moves slightly over or under the shadow when it's on the far side of the Earth from the sun.

According to Accuweather, it will be the first total lunar eclipse visible in its entirety across the United States since December 21, 2010.

Stargazers are hoping for a clear night as the "supermoon" event brings wonderment to the sky in the early hours of Monday.

As previously mentioned, the difference in size and brightness is due to the moon's proximity to Earth.

Will you be up to see the lunar eclipse? On this day, the Science Center will be open from 9 a.m. through 1 a.m.to celebrate the eclipse.

When will the next lunar eclipse be?

"You watch what is happening and see the change".
