A ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ Lunar Eclipse Is Happening Sunday Night Into Monday

Sunday night… look up! If the skies are clear, you will notice that the moon doesn’t quite look the same. In fact, things may get a little weird on January 20th. There are three elements in play that will come together to give us a Super Blood Wolf Moon. That only happens 3 times in a century!

A total lunar eclipse is referred to as a blood moon because when the sun, Earth and moon all line up briefly, the shadow of the Earth casts a reddish shadow. We could see hues of red, orange or other colours depending where you are.

Here is the schedule in local time:

Eastern Time

Partial umbral eclipse begins: 10:34 p.m. (January 20)

The moon begins to enter the shadow

Total lunar eclipse begins: 11:41 p.m. (January 20)

Mid eclipse: 12:12 a.m. (January 21) Total lunar eclipse ends: 12:43 a.m. (January 21)

Partial umbral eclipse ends: 1:51 a.m. (January 21)The moon completely exits the shadow
