Get ready for the “Super Blood Wolf Moon” on January 20

                                                                                                                                            Hemisphere will be able to experience the only total lunar eclipse of 2019 — dubbed the “Super Blood Wolf Moon.”

… The Old Farmer’s Almanac states the term “blood moon” comes from dark red color that the moon glows when it’s in the Earth’s shadow. The word “super” is used to designate a “super moon,” which means the full or new Moon is closest to Earth in its orbit, making it appear larger and brighter than usual. As for the “wolf” description, the term originated from Native American tribes and early colonists to define a full moon that occurs in January.

… The partial eclipse will begin at 10:33 PM ET on Sunday, January 20, and will take over 3½ hours to go through all of its phases. During the first hour, the Moon will go through different phases, turning orange and red — almost resembling Mars. At 11:41 PM ET, totality begins, meaning that the moon should give off the dark red glow it’s famous for, but that can vary based on the atmospheric conditions.
