Wolf Blood Super Moon will be visible from Northern Ireland

Sullivan, who objects to the recent trend of naming ordinary full moons and celestial events with words like "super" and "blood", said there is, however, a legitimately interesting lunar event coming: a total eclipse. About once a month, a full moon is visible when it nears that far point and shines brightly as Earth covers up most of the sun.

Finally, full moons are given monthly names, and this one happens to be the "wolf" moon.

It's understood the eclipse will last five hours, and while many Kiwis may not see it, there are four more eclipses due to occur around the world this year.

All week the Central Florida Astronomical Society has been celebrating Moon Week, and Sunday's culmination is this viewing party in honor of the SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON!

At 9:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, the moon will start to creep into the part of Earth's shadow known as the penumbra.

"However, our telescopes magnify the moon 100 times which will provide spectacular detail as the Earth, Moon and Sun line up to create a total eclipse".

As for full-moon supermoons, this will be the first of three this year.

Democratic-led states successfully challenged the Trump administration's interim rules in federal district court. She said the new rules "uphold the freedoms afforded all Americans under our Constitution".

Depending on where you are in the country, the moon might "turn a copper-orange-reddish color", according to a January 7 article Forbes magazine.

Unlike a solar eclipse, you can look at a lunar eclipse. Totality ends at 12:44 a.m. with the partial eclipse finishing at 1:51 a.m. ET at which time the moon returns to its usual bright silvery self.

The "Blood" part comes from the way the sun's light passes through Earth's atmosphere during the eclipse. Sunday's eclipse will nearly coincide with that perigee, meaning that the moon won't just be redder than usual, it will also look a tiny bit wider.

Then, the fun begins as the moon enters the umbra or darker shadow. "It not only is a supermoon and it's a total eclipse, but the total eclipse also lasts pretty long".

The outcome depends a great deal on how much dust is in Earth's atmosphere, he said. And the best thing is, you don't need any special equipment to watch it: just step outside, look up and find the moon.

Environment Canada is calling for clear skies for Sunday night's eclipse with a low of only -4 C, so night-sky gazers should be able enjoy the view in relative comfort.

The next total lunar eclipse isn't expected to grace the skies until May 2021.
