'Super blood wolf moon' eclipse to darken skies
18 January, 2019, 18:24
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!
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.
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.
