Lunar Eclipse happening Sunday night

Sunday night's 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' will be first total lunar eclipse in three years

According to a fun fact from Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, for anyone watching the cosmic event from on the moon, they'd be seeing a solar eclipse as well.

All of these aspects of the full moon expected this weekend are what gives the January full wolf moon the full name of the January full wolf super blood moon.

The science of lunar eclipses is easy to understand, once you grasp that the moon's orbit is tilted relative to Earth's orbit around the sun. Usually, the slightly tilted path means the full moon still gets some light from the sun. Such a moon has come to be called a supermoon.

The best time is around 5.12am to catch the maximum eclipse, when the moon will be completely submerged within the Earth's shadow. See, the Moon doesn't revolve around Earth in a ideal circle, but more of an ellipse.

He has cited a "humanitarian crisis" and "invasion" at the border for the need for funding to begin construction. In a letter laced with sarcasm and accompanied by his dramatic signature, Trump responded in kind.

It's considered a "supermoon" because the moon will reach its closest orbital point to Earth, making it appear 10 to 15 percent bigger than usual. "Once it (fully) enters the shadow, it actually has kind of an orangish-reddish color, caused by the sunlight that separates the colors of the rainbow; the red tends to curve around the Earth and then illuminate the moon".

This includes a total lunar eclipse, super blood moon and a "Wolf Moon".

What is a wolf moon? .

As for the "Wolf" part of the name, it's just what January's Full Moon is known as.

The Swiss, unseeded for the first time since his debut in 2006, fell 6-7 (7), 7-6 (8), 7-6 (13), 7-6 (7). But he wasted four chances to break and then lost his serve to surrender the third set.

The best place to watch the Super Wolf Blood moon is anywhere where the moon is visible, which entirely depends on whether the skies are clear or cloudy.

'A blood Moon is one of the few opportunities we have to see both the Moon and the stars in the sky at the same time, since the Moon is usually too bright'. "This most important thing is to make sure you're somewhere where there's no clouds, though there's no way to control that". Starting at 9:34 p.m. central time, a dark, curved shade will become visible on the face of the moon, according to Michelle Nichols, director of public observing at the Adler Planetarium. Most of the show is over about 12:50 a.m. Monday, and the end of the eclipse is 1:48 a.m.

Astronomy buffs are excited for a total lunar eclipse that will happen Sunday night.
