Get ready for Super blood wolf moon

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

"The same reason that a sunset appears red, which is that the light is scattered through the atmosphere of Earth causes the light hitting the moon during the total lunar eclipse to also appear red", he said.

"The total lunar eclipse will be the first visible in North America in three years".

Super moons will look about 7 percent bigger than an average full moon (and 12 to 14 percent bigger than a full moon at apogee).

Christian conspiracy theorists are claiming that as result of the spectacular lunar display, Christ will appear on Earth and herald in the end of days. The first total lunar eclipse to follow January 21's event will occur on May 26, 2021, and will be visible over the Pacific Ocean, with viewing possibilities in North America, South America and east Asia. Total lunar eclipses happen nearly every year, but this exact type of lunar eclipse happens every 18 years, said Brad Jolliff, a professor who studies lunar geochemistry at Washington University.

First, let's look at the "blood" part of the name. You will be able to see the eclipse with the naked eye, but if you have binoculars, take them out of the drawer for a better view. Full lunar eclipses occur between two and four times a year.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story listed a scheduled eclipse watch party at the Department of Energy-owned Weldon Spring Site in St. Charles.

Might as well make the effort to see it as the next total lunar eclipse won't be until May 2021.

The moon glowing red while it's in the Earth's shadow is typical for a full lunar eclipse because of how the planet's atmosphere bends light, Brothers said. While not all that rare of an event, the moon will be 356,000 km distant, making it less than 50,000 km closer than most of the time.

Capturing the eclipse on camera might prove a bit more hard for photographers, so astronomy expert Alan Dyer has a guide on How to Photograph the 2019 Lunar Eclipse. At this point, the moon is not yet a dark red, but it is slightly dim.

With the "blood moon" part of the eclipse, Brian Murphy, director of Indiana's Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium and Butler University professor said although the moon is in Earth's shadow, some sunlight still reaches the moon.

Granted permission to stay up past his 8 p.m. bedtime, Gabriel Houging, 8, of Citrus Heights, California, is already dreaming of what he'll see.

Yes, there will be a full moon on January 20, according to Woody Sullivan, University of Washington astronomer and professor emeritus.

The total eclipse, which will begin minutes before midnight on the East Coast (0500 GMT) and just before 9 p.m.in the West, will unfold on the day before Martin Luther King Jr.
