Greg Reffern is calling is the full sun lunar eclipse of the wolf and does not sound simple – says it will look good. Here is when and how to watch.
Hello DMV from the Azamara Pursuit Cruise Ship in the Atlantic Ocean!
Sunday evening, January 20-21, the western hemisphere of the planet will be treated with many of the media called "Super Blood Moon." I'd rather call her the full super-monkey wolf for a lunar eclipse. The last complete lunar eclipse, also an overmodern event, in the DK area is January 31, 2018, but this is not such a big event for the area. This is not the case this time.
You can see the eclipse literally everywhere ̵
You can try to see the elusive penibrian shadow starting at 21:36 EST, but it's hard to see. The best part of this eclipse will take almost three and a half hours, from the beginning of the first partial phase that is easily visible at 22:34. until the end of the second partial phase at 1:51
The totality, when the full wolf of the wolves is completely covered by the shadow of the Earth, will last 62 minutes, averaging at 12:12 and ending at 12:43 h. You will have another chance to try to find Penumbra from 1:52 am until 2:48 am, when the eclipse is over.
If time co-operates, viewers will see the entire lunar eclipse well located in the sky, and experience those glorious 62 minutes of the moon almost to the south in the sky.
OK, but this name …
OK, why did this event have such a long name, with "super" and "blood" and "wolf" instead of just "complete lunar eclipse"? The big question, and here's the answer: This is the first of the three "super-filled moons" in a row, while February will be the closest and fuller full moon of the year.
"Blood Moon" is a popular phrase used to describe the reddish color that the Moon takes during the darkness fullness phase. The color is caused by the sunlight passing through the earth's atmosphere and falling on the surface of the moon. As our planet completely blocks the sunlight, this reddish color – just as we can see at dawn and sunset here on Earth – is the only light that reaches the moon. lunar eclipse "as it keeps intact the use of a" full moon moon "used to describe the full moon in January. The full moon of each month has a name associated with it from folklore and culture of the past. January's lunar war means wolf wailing in the winter. There are other names that can also be used, but every month there are favorites.

The NASA Orbiter Lunar Reconnaissance will be solar-free during a set, but it should be okay while on batteries. The spacecraft, which rotates in orbit, must also protect against the intense cold.
China's Rohr and the port of Chang's are already in deep cold and darkness, as they are on the far side of the moon where the sun is gone. Do not forget to enjoy an added heaven bonus, with brilliant Venus and Jupiter currently decorating the morning sky at 5am southeast. They will be closest to the morning of January 22, so do not forget to look.
I will be at sea in front of the west coast of South America and will witness the whole eclipse if the sky is clear. I will tweet any pictures I get to @wtop .
