Total Lunar Eclipse Meets Supermoon Sunday Night

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". As the light passes through the atmosphere it gets bent toward the moon.

Midwesterners and southerners should get a good look at the big, red moon.

If the skies are clear, the entire eclipse will be visible in North and South America, as well as Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and the French and Spanish coasts.

"During totality, which will last 62 minutes, the moon will appear to glow like an eerie ball - which to the eye, and especially in binoculars and small telescopes - will appear nearly three dimensional", Joe Rao, an instructor at New York's Hayden Planetarium, wrote in a Space.com column. Totality ends at 12:44 a.m. with the partial eclipse finishing at 1:51 a.m. ET at which time the moon returns to its usual bright silvery self.

Ranting and shouting into the camera, Agyapong said: "That boy (Ahmed-Hussein) that's very unsafe , he lives here in Madina". The methods have been denounced as illegal by some, including Nyantakyi, who said he will appeal his life ban from soccer.

But it isn't the so-called "super blood wolf moon", according to one local astronomer. Day - off, so have no worries about staying up late howling at the SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON.

With the "blood moon" part of the eclipse, Brian Murphy, director of Indiana's Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium and Butler University professor said although the moon is in Earth's shadow, some sunlight still reaches the moon.

Earth's own thick atmosphere causes the spectacular colours on the lunar disc. Sunlight shines through our dust filled air, and bends the sunlight towards the red part of the spectrum resulting in the moon glowing reddish - the same reason we see the Sun turn shades of red during sunsets.

The red effect is due to Earth's atmosphere. "It not only is a supermoon and it's a total eclipse, but the total eclipse also lasts pretty long".

The "Wolf" portion of the name is a little less scientific and uniquely American.

And lastly is the 'Wolf Moon, ' a name given to the first full moon of the year. January's full moon was referred to as the Wolf Moon. If you decide to head out, look up and check it out, make sure to dress warm.

The whole eclipse starts Sunday night or early Monday, depending on location, and will take about three hours.

This will be the first Total Lunar Eclipse (TLE) entirely visible from the island of Ireland since 2015 - with the next not taking place until 2028.
