Lunar Eclipse & Super Moon

Kristine Garrett | 22 January, 2019, 20:26

A picture taken on January 21, 2019 in Duisburg, Germany, shows a view of the Super Blood Moon above an industrial plant during a lunar eclipse.

Earth cast two shadows on the moon during the eclipse.

Vincent said the lunar eclipse should expose changes in life that need to happen but have been neglected. While the moon won't turn red again for several years, there will be several partial lunar eclipses in 2019 and 2020. The term "penumbral" refers to a situation in which the moon just skirts into the lightest part of the Earth's shadow, meaning the eclipse is just barely visible.

Totality - when the moon is completely bathed in Earth's shadow - lasted an hour.

North and South America will see a penumbral eclipse on July 5, 2020, as will Europe and Africa.

During a lunar eclipse, the Moon appears red because the light of the Sun no longer directly illuminates it, since Earth is passing in between the Moon and Sun.

The depth of the deep blood red varies during each eclipse depending on how clear the atmosphere is at the time.

Some people are also calling this moon a wolf moon. Instead tribes gave each full moon a nickname to keep track of the seasons and lunar months. The moniker "Wolf Moon" was given to every January moon by Native Americans. Each moon has its own name associated with the full moon. When the moon began to "bleed", the Arawak Indians were fooled into giving Columbus and his crew food.

The next total lunar eclipses will be visible in Canada on May 26, 2021, and May 15, 2022.
