There are many amazing spectacles of nature, but among the most beautiful are the ones seen only on rare occasion. Ever heard of a super blood wolf moon? If not, today is your lucky day! A super blood wolf moon is nature's perfect recipe for a unique and beautiful night. Like most celestial activity, this event only happens once in a blue moon, or a red one in this scenario.
So what is a super blood wolf moon? Well, let's break it down. A super moon is what we call the moon when it is the closest in its orbit that it can get to Earth. Because of this, the moon appears larger than it would at different times. A blood moon is simply another name for a lunar eclipse wherein the moon passes into the shadow of earth and changes its color to a dark red. Finally, a wolf moon, is what we call the first full moon of the year. All together that makes one of the coolest sounding events nature can offer: The super blood wolf moon.
Now that you are aware of this phenomenon, I’m sure the next burning questions of your mind have already formed. When does this happen? Will you be able to see it? If you live in North America, it’s your lucky day. The next super blood wolf moon will be January, 20th, 2019 and will be visible for over an hour. The best time to see it, however, will be at precisely 9:21pm, as that is when the moon will be at its darkest red.
Here’s to hoping it won’t get cloudy that night! If you are new to this blog, feel free to subscribe below! Don’t forget to share this with your friends!
