Bright skies tonight for what could be a spectacular lunar eclipse

Bright skies tonight for what could be a spectacular lunar eclipse Ireland to witness the most spectacular lunar eclipse for the next 14 years tomorrow

A lunar eclipse producing a "Super Blood Wolf Moon" was overly visible Sunday night in Magnolia, and across half of the globe, as cold, cloudless south Arkansas skies offered ideal views of the astronomical rarity. The total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth's shadow.

Clear skies Sunday night gave the Sunshine Coast a flawless view of the total lunar eclipse.

An eclipse is a result of the flawless lineup of the sun, earth and moon.

Earth cast two shadows on the moon during the eclipse.

Sunday's blood moon was also visible in Central and South America and parts of Western Europe and Africa.

Bryan Singer Facing New Accusations Of Sexual Misconduct Involving Underage Boys
In October, Singer tried to get ahead of the magazine article, then slated to run in Esquire magazine . One of the new accusers claimed Singer fondled him on a movie set when he was just 13 in 1997.

The incredible thing about this latest lunar eclipse was that we in western Pennsylvania got to see the whole thing right after being hit by a winter storm.

When the full moon moves into Earth's shadow, it darkens, but it doesn't disappear. A supermoon - it was 2019's first - is when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit during its full phase, making it appear bigger and brighter. And David Wahl, the Director of Awesome at Seattle's Archie McPhee novelty emporium, suggested that from now on, each night's moon should be given a jazzy name. In January, it's known as the "wolf moon", inspired by hungry wolves that howled outside of villages long ago, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac. In Seattle, you'll want to set your alarm clock for 4:11 a.m. on May 26, 2021, to catch 14 minutes of totality.

But why don't we see total lunar eclipses more often?

With the naked eye it wasn't very visible Sunday but some footage - including that from Griffith Observatory's live feed - showed a reddish-orange color around the edges of the moon.
