Look up into the night sky on Sunday and: if it is clear: you may witness the so-called "Super Blood Wolf Moon" total lunar eclipse, which will take a star turn across the continental United States during prime time for viewing.
A supermoon occurs when the moon is within 90 percent of its closest possible distance to the Earth. For the keen sky-watchers the lunar disk will appear a few percent larger and brighter than usual making it a handsome sight to soak in and a great photo opportunity.
A "wolf moon" is what Native Americans call the year's first full moon. Eastern Standard Time, or shortly past 7:30 p.m. The only light wavelength left is red - dimly illuminating the moon with less than one-thousandth of the full moon's normal brightness. The next extreme supermoon, when the moon is as close to the Earth as it can be, will be January 21, 2023.
"This total lunar eclipse on the morning of Monday January 21st will be entirely seen in Irish skies from start to finish so we are recommending everyone take a day off work or school and watch this incredible spectacle of nature when the brilliant full moon turns to a dim "blood moon" for 62 minutes".
This Monday, if the weather sticks to the forecast, you'll be able to see the Super Wolf Blood Moon early in the morning. That's why an eclipsed moon is sometimes known as a blood moon. During the eclipse, our planet's shadow is projected onto the full Moon, slowly darkening its surface until it's completely covered. The last supermoon/lunar eclipse occurred in 1982.
As NASA explains, Earth casts a red shadow because of how our atmosphere scatters light. As the light passes through the atmosphere it gets bent toward the moon.

We've seen it with Norv and Scott Turner in Minnesota, and Mike Zimmer's son, Adam, is the Vikings linebackers coach. Donatell fills the role held the past two seasons by Joe Woods, who the 49ers will reportedly hire .
"It's going to be a moon, but it's going to look like you painted it orange!" While the reddish-coppery color is common, it's not a guarantee Rao said, as it depends on atmospheric conditions at the time.
First, let's look at the "blood" part of the name.
The moon rises the evening of January 30th, 2018 along the St. Petersburg waterfront.
The arctic air mass headed to the Carolinas Sunday night will cause temperatures to drop 20 degrees in six hours - from the 50s to the 30s - but there is an upside, says the National Weather Service.
On top of changing colors, the moon will be super. "It not only is a supermoon and it's a total eclipse, but the total eclipse also lasts pretty long".
