LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) – Next month we get a wonderful treat with what can be called a super blood wolf lunar eclipse.
The total lunar eclipse, or blood moon, which will also coincide with the super moon will be seen on January 20, according to the Indianapolis Star, and will be finished early January 21.
The next total lunar eclipse is May 26, 2021.
Brian Murphy, director of the Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium and professor of Butler University told the newspaper that each year usually has two lunar eclipses with a total lunar eclipse every two years.
A total lunar eclipse is when the moon passes completely into the shadow of the Earth.
Supermoon is the time of the month when the moon is closest to Earth and the first full moon of this year is known as the wolf moon.
Murphy said, you will see & # 39; small notches taken from the moon & # 39; around 9:30 a.m. January 20
Then at 10:30 a.m., it will move to a partial eclipse with a full eclipse starting at 11:40 a.m. and maximum eclipse at 12:12 am on January 21.
Murphy says the moon will look reddish.
He said to go in your backyard to see it and try to stay away from street lights or blue lights.
