Lunar eclipse and super moon visible in Ireland this month

How to see the last 'super blood wolf moon' lunar eclipse for 18 years

This is where the darker orange and red colors will become visible as the total eclipse begins.

Due to all of the lunar events happening at once this moon is being called the January wolf super blood moon, or some variation of that.

Sunday night's moon will be a Super Blood Wolf Moon, which is a mouthful, but all of those words have a unique meaning describing the astronomical event.

The European Space Agency also believes a "good fraction" of the world's population will be able to see the "Super Blood Wolf Eclipse". As the moon circles the Earth, it does so in an uneven way, as its orbit is inclined by 5 degrees from that of the Earth so it seems to be higher or lower in the sky on different nights. It is kind of egg-shaped.

The Williams sisters played each other twice in 2018, with Venus winning at Indian Wells and Serena winning in NY . The 23 times Grand Slam victor was spotted in a turquoise romper while playing at the Australian Open .

If one were standing on the moon, looking back at the sun, one would see the black disk of Earth blocking the entire sun, but also a ring of reflected light glowing around the edges of Earth. As a result, the moon appears to be up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter during a supermoon. Totality will hit about 10:12 p.m., and the eclipse will end about 12:48 a.m. Monday. For a lunar eclipse, the moon, Earth, and sun are all directly in line. Usually, the slightly tilted path means the full moon still gets some light from the sun.

There will be two shadows that the moon will pass through. When that happens, it will look like a chunk of the moon has gone missing. That is because the reduced amount of sunlight which reaches the moon is scattered by the Earth's atmosphere. This will create a phenomenon, which illuminates the moon. To put it in simple words, it is called "Blood Moon" because of the reddish tinge in moon.

"Romantically, you can think of it as all the sunrises and sunsets of the Earth being cast on to the surface of the moon simultaneously", he said. In total, this event will last a little over 3 hours. What makes this special is the fact that it is a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse. If you're going to look up at any point that evening, this is the time. Educators will be present to answer questions and a video of the eclipse will also be streamed inside on massive screens, providing a flawless view, rain or shine.

As AccuWeather reports, much of the United States will be plagued by poor weather, harming viewing conditions across the Northeast, Midwest and Pacific Northwest.
