Spread the love

One January 21st at 11:45 pm the Western Hemisphere will be where you can see the Super Blood Moon Sunday night into Monday. There will only be one lunar eclipse this year. The rare Super Blood Moon will have stargazers setting up tripods and cameras to capture this rare event.

The next total eclipse will take place on May 26, 2021.
A total lunar eclipse takes place as the moon passes through Earth’s full shadow.
It is a phenomenon in which the moon appears red and reddish brown. People will be able to watch series of events which include lunar eclipse, super blood moon and a “Wolf Moon” or Super Blood Wolf Moon.

What is a Super Blood Moon. From Wikipedia:

A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee—the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit—resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as viewed from Earth.[The technical name is a perigee syzygy (of the Earth–Moon–Sun system) or a full (or new) Moon around perigee.[a] The term supermoon is astrological in origin and has no precise astronomical definition.[2]

The real association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but no such link has been found
