Super Blood Moon

The American Astronomical Fanatics will have an extraordinary treat to watch with their naked eyes. On January 20th, 2019 the Super Blood Moon will appear in the United States Sky. If the weather conditions permit you, then you can watch super sized blood moon with your naked eyes. After three years, the Total Lunar Eclipse can be spotted in the United States, South America and some parts of Europe and Africa. The 62 Minute long Lunar Eclipse will make the moon glow in red color due to the shadow of the earth.

The Blood Moon is also known as the Wolf Moon. Due to the solar eclipse on the January 20th, the day of fool moon, the satellite of the planet will look enormous and will glow red. The phenomenon is appearing after three years in the United States. On January 20-21, the midnight skies will have the dark moon with red color on it. The last blue moon was seen on the January 31st, 2018 after 1866 in the states. The blue moon is pretty frequent, but the Blood moon is a rare phenomenon.

The Lunar Eclipse requires the Earth to come in between the Moon and Sun to block the sunlight sent on the moon. With the absence of the sunlight on the moon, it stops illuminating and glows in red color due to refracted lightwaves. If you are interested in watching the Lunar Eclipse in the night skies, then it’ll start at 11:41 p.m. ET on Jan. 20 and peak at about 12:16 a.m. ET on the 21st. The total time of the Eclipse is 62 Minutes in Total from the Start to End. Along with the Eclipse, the moon is coming closest with 225,558 miles of Earth Perigee.
