Viewer Photos Of The Super Blood Wolf Moon

Lunar De-Light! How to View 2019's Sole Total Eclipse of the Moon

We can see the red light during an eclipse as it falls onto the Moon in Earth's shadow.

That's the Super Blood Wolf Moon super-mooning the earth Sunday night - the only total lunar eclipse this year replete with a supermoon bonus. Wolf moon is a Native American name for the first full moon of the year.

The full eclipse began at 4.40 am in the United Kingdom and appeared red at 5.12 am, according to the Royal Astronomical Society.

The Super Blood Wolf Moon dazzled those who could see it in the Americas and parts of Europe. The wolf part is for January's full moon. Totality - when the moon's completely bathed in Earth's shadow - lasted an hour.

The next total lunar eclipse is expected in May of 2021. To be even more precise, the Royal Astronomical Society said viewers in northwestern France, northwestern Spain, Portugal, the eastern Pacific and northeastern tip of Russian Federation would see the total eclipse.

CNN says as the full moon comes into Earth's shadow, it darkens and the sunlight that passes through the atmosphere of the Earth makes the moon look red.

What is a lunar eclipse? "A lunar eclipse can only happen during a full moon, when the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun".

The Virtual Telescope Project shared a live stream of the lunar eclipse at its brightest above the skyline of Rome.

The lunar eclipse began on January 20 at 9:36 p.m., but the best time to view it was starting around 10:34 p.m., when the first phase of the eclipse took place and the moon began to get dark.

The optimum viewing time was at around 5.12am when the eclipse was at its peak.
