Super Blood Wolf Moon this Sunday Night

 

There will be a rare, lunar eclipse this Sunday night. It is called the Super Blood Wolf Moon- a total lunar eclipse and supermoon all in one. A total lunar eclipse is when the Earth covers the moon with its shadow, causing the appearance of a red color. A supermoon is the appearance of a very large moon due to a full moon combined with its closest proximity to Earth.

If you will be in Gainesville on Sunday evening, the partial begins at 9:36pm. Totality begins at 11:41 and will be at its maximum at 12:12am. During totality, the moon will look red. It will end at 2:48am.

This will be an awesome thing to watch by yourself or with family and friends! The next total lunar eclipse won’t be until May 2021. There will be three full-supermoons this year, including this one. However, the next combination won’t be until another 18 years!
