A 'super blood wolf moon eclipse' is happening this weekend

The 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' will be visible over Orlando this weekend 'Super blood wolf moon' eclipse to darken skies

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 on its lone natural satellite. Since this is the day before Martin Luther King Day, many children will not have school the next day and can stay up to enjoy the celestial spectacle with their families.

Stargazers across Northern Ireland will be in for a treat next week, as a rare form of lunar eclipse will be visible in our skies - a "Wolf Blood Super Moon". Your eyes are just fine to see the show. The lunar eclipse is for everyone!

Petr Cech Announces He'll Retire At End Of Season
And Spanish goalkeeping great Iker Casillas took to Twitter to pay tribute, hailing Cech as "One of the best goalkeepers I have ever seen". 'I fancy an away win.

My modern-day chums at AccuWeather are predicting, as of this morning, a clear night for the eclipse - despite freezing temperatures in the 20s - and, no, you will need no special eyewear as is required for a daylight eclipse. If you are reading this from outside the Chattanooga community, go to timeanddate.com and type in your location. January supposedly brings the Wolf Moon because Native Americans and early European settlers associated the sight with hungry wolves howling outside their villages.

The blood moon comes overnight. The reason there's any color to the eclipse - or to sunsets and sunrises, for that matter - is because red light makes it through our atmosphere better than blue light, and the light cast on the moon during an eclipse is light that's peeking around the edges of the Earth through our atmosphere. Viewed from the USA east coast the moon will enter Earth's umbra just a few minutes after 10:30 P.M., with the full lunar disk falling wholly into shadow for slightly over an hour, beginning at 11:41 P.M. The moon will start to move into Earth's shadow at about 2.30am, but will be completely inside the shadow between 4.40am and 5.40am.

Ant McPartlin will return to presenting work on Britain's Got Talent TOMORROW
He was later banned from the road for 20 months and fined £86,000 for driving while more than twice the legal drink-drive limit. ANT MCPARTLIN is making his long-awaited return to TV work this week as the auditions for Britain's Got Talent get underway.

More commonly, people know the full moon in September as the harvest moon. "Front row center" belongs to those who live near and along the U.S. East Coast, where the totally eclipsed moon will climb to extraordinary heights. It's the "moment of greatest eclipse, when the Moon is halfway through the umbra, occurs", NASA explains. That's why it's called a wolf moon.

Sunday will mark the final time a lunar eclipse and a supermoon occur at the same time until May 2021. A Wolf Moon is the name given to the first full moon in January.

Bipartisan group of senators want Trump to reopen government
In her request to Trump , Pelosi recommended that Trump deliver written remarks to Congress as Jefferson once did. The House and Senate had voted to give the workers back pay whenever the federal government reopens.

The moon orbits around the Earth every 27.3 days in a path that is slightly elliptical, meaning it can be closer or farther from Earth throughout the month.
