January 2019 lunar eclipse: How to watch the super wolf moon eclipse



Editor's note: All times listed are Eastern Standard Time

Technically, it may be called a super-blood wolf moon eclipse.

Starting January 20, a total lunar eclipse, or month of the month, being in tandem with a supermoon, is visible throughout the US The event starts late in the evening on January 20, and ends during several hours of Jan. 21.

The next total moon eclipse occurs on May 26, 2021. Brian Murphy, director of the Holcomb Observatory and Planetarium and professor of Butler University, usually has two lunar eclipses each year, with total monthly eclipse of about two years.

"These are not technically rare," he said. "In clear weather, half of the land can see it."

What's going on?

The main event is the total lunar eclipse, which occurs when the moon passes completely into the shadow of the Earth. Second, it is a supermoon, which is the time of the month when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. Finally, this is the first full moon of the year, also known as the wolf moon.

When is the extra balloon out of blood?

Starting at 9:36 p.m. On January 20, viewers see a "little notch is a type taken out of the moon," Murphy says.

"The moon begins to enter the shadow of the earth in a part called umbra, when the sun is completely blocked," he said. "Earth moves from right to left through the shadow."

At 1

0:33, a partial eclipse moves, and starting at 11:41 pm, the entire eclipse starts, with maximum eclipse at 12:12 am

"You notice the stars are more visible because the moon is less than the 100th of the light, "says Murphy.

The moon will appear as a "reddish bronze color," Murphy explained, thus the name of the blood moon. Some sunlight extends to the environment of the world, covering the moon and giving it rich colors. The entire eclipse ends at 12:43 a.m.

How to guard the lunar eclipse

The best condition to view the total lunar eclipse is a clear sky. Even though some clouds would be okay, Murphy says.

"I hope there is at least the clouds," he said. "When we arrived in December and January, it was cloudy 40 or 60 percent of the time."

Murphy recommends people go to their own backyard to view the event, and try to stay away from any street lights, especially the blue light. He has not yet confirmed whether the observatory is open for the event.

Between 11:40 p.m. at 12:43 a.m. is when the color of reddish orange is visible, Murphy said.

What do I need to see the disappearance?

No special equipment is needed, and it is absolutely amazing in its own, Murphy said.

If you are looking to snap any blood moon pictures, you may have some lucky shot of a photo by binoculars or a telescope. Murphy said it was a great time to look at the stars, as they would be brighter and clearer.

Details: Starts at 9:36 PM. on Sunday, January 20. Ending 2:48 a.m. Monday, January 21.
