Super moon, a total Lunar eclipse and bright planets

"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 next total lunar eclipse that's positioned over North America won't be until May of 2022.

There is a problem, however. There's another storm expected Sunday raising the possibility that the eclipse could be eclipsed by clouds. In all, assuming good weather conditions, this shady little drama will have a potential viewing audience of some 2.8 billion people.

According to the Weather Network, the full moon will be 357,728 kilometres from Earth around midnight on Sunday, so it won't just be red, but it will also appear larger in the sky.

The Spokane Astronomical Society will be set up for viewing the eclipse at the Southeast Sports Complex, 2700 E. 46th Ave., said Nick Monkman, president of the SAS.

Unlike a solar eclipse, you can look at a lunar eclipse. Pacific Standard Time, Earth's shadow will start passing in front of the moon from the lower left, and about an hour later, the full lunar eclipse appears.

At 7:36 p.m. MST/Arizona time, the eclipse will be in its penumbral state, meaning a partial shadow of the Earth will be cast over the moon. The moon will slightly dim as it moves into and across the penumbra, but observers will only notice the dimming very slightly, if at all, according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. At 12:43 a.m. EST Monday (Jan. 21), the moon will poke itself out of the umbra and into the penumbra; and at 1:50 a.m. EST (10:50 p.m. PST, Jan. 20), it will have totally left the umbra.

Azarenka loses in first Australian Open match since '16
The tournament's two No. 1 seeds, Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep, played at night and both won - although in contrasting fashion. Williams needed all of 18 minutes to wrap up the first set, ceding just five of 29 points along the way.

If you're hungry for the eerie sight of a total lunar eclipse, you have to keep the weather in mind. It's just some rare cosmic geometry that will turn a big ol' full moon a spooky shade of crimson for a spell.

A "wolf Moon" is simply a folk name for the Moon that rises during January.

"Wolves come out that evening", Bruce said. In October, it is the hunter's moon. I prefer to reserve that designation for the closest and brightest moon in a given year (which occurs in February this year).

We get two to five supermoons every year, while the gap between blood moons is anywhere from six months to about three years. "Our world can change the appearance of another world, and during an eclipse, the universe lets us see this color play", she said.

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

He says the celestial show begins around 10:30 Sunday night. And fortunately the eclipse is also taking place on the eve of the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, when many Americans have the day off from work or school-so feel free to stay up late!
