Super Blue Blood Moon On The Horizon

Super blue blood moon returns

But you'll have to get up early Wednesday to see the Super Blue Blood Moon. According to the reports, Moon will be seen 14% brighter and 30% larger compared to other days. Thankfully the weather will be clear, crisp and cold, ideal for viewing. In the Central Time Zone, the best viewing will be from 6:15 until 6:30 a.m. CST. The whole trifecta has been dubbed the "Super Blue Blood Moon". Oddly enough, this phenomena is not that rare, occurring on average every 2.5 years.

For Denver residents, the eclipse starts 3:51 a.m. local time, with the umbra hitting the Moon's edge at 4:48 a.m.

A "Supermoon" is generally defined when the moon is slightly closer to the Earth in its orbit because that orbit is not a true ideal circle.

The Moon will enter the outer part of Earth's shadow at 5:51 a.m. EST, but it reportedly won't be all that noticeable.

Lunar eclipses occur at least twice a year.

McDowell said whether you're looking from atop a hill or the top floor of the Prudential Center, you won't be able to see a total eclipse.




First, there will be a super moon. The last time the Western hemisphere saw one of these was in 1866.

PEOPLE around the world are getting excited at the prospect of seeing an incredibly rare "super blue blood moon" - but, if you live in Spain you'll have to make do with "just" a super, blue moon. Johnston said the January 21, 2019 lunar eclipse will be visible throughout all of the USA and will be a supermoon, though it won't be a blue moon.

The lunar eclipse, which takes place when the moon passes in the Earth's shadow, will last nearly three and a half hours.

FULL: While the moon will be full precisely at 8:37 ET Wednesday morning, it'll still be plenty big through the rest of the night and for the next night or two. The moon will be cast in a reddish, orange hue as it passes through the Earth's shadow, hence the name blood moon. From Northern California, the northwest corner of Nevada, all of OR and Washington, the Idaho panhandle, as well as the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and most of Alberta, the moon will set after it completely exits the Earth's dark - umbral shadow (6:08 a.m. PST, 7:08 a.m. MST).

The next super moon lunar eclipse visible throughout all of the United States will be January 21, 2019 - though that one will not be a blue moon.
