When to look for the Super Blood Wolf Moon

When to look for the Super Blood Wolf Moon

The total eclipse will end at 11:50 p.m.

Stargazers are in for an epic astronomical treat this weekend, when three cosmic elements merge to create a "super blood wolf moon", something that's only going to happen three times this century.

Why is it called a 'super blood wolf moon?' This can only be possible when the Sun, Earth and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned and having the earth between them.

On the other side of the orbit, the moon is 251,904 miles away from Earth - this is apogee, and the moon looks smaller (hence the nickname "micromoon"). It is kind of egg-shaped.

'While at perigee, the Moon appears slightly bigger and brighter from our perspective on Earth, so it's often referred to as a supermoon.

A lunar eclipse happens when the earth is between the sun and the moon. As the night progresses, the earth's shadow will move off the moon, and the moon will be viable again.

"The moon doesn't make any light of its own".

According to scientists, this will be our last chance to see a total eclipse of the moon until 2029.

Walter Freeman, an assistant teaching professor at Syracuse University in NY state, said: "A little bit of sunlight is refracted by the Earth's atmosphere and reaches the Moon, bending around the edges of the Earth". This light is refracted through the earth's atmosphere giving the moon an eerie glow. Expect the colour of this moon to be the dark reddish orange. Totality - when the moon is completely bathed in Earth's shadow - will last an hour, starting at about 10:41 p.m.in Minnesota. The edge will be curved indicating the spherical nature of our planet. The main event lasts about an hour.

The partial eclipse will begin at 6:33 p.m. AKDT on Sunday. If it feels like there's been several special moon events in the past few years, you're right. City lights also will not interfere with seeing the eclipse. The stunning celestial show has been eagerly-anticipated by both amateur photographers and eclipse experts.

As AccuWeather reports, much of the United States will be plagued by poor weather, harming viewing conditions across the Northeast, Midwest and Pacific Northwest.
