The full moon eclipse will be on January 20.
The name of the "moon of the wolf of the blood" takes its name when the eclipse is full of the moon (the wolf moon is called in January) and closer to the Earth (superluna). The reddish shadow of the Earth will appear.
The lunar eclipse lasts for an hour and two minutes.
On January 20, Earth will pass between the sun and the moon, blocking the sun's light and making it a shadow on the moon.
This is a full lunar equation and it will be the last time we will see it until May 20, 2021 (even though it had been the previous partial eclipses).
The entire plateau of the Eclipsis is not uncommon, which occurred in July 2018 but stands out as the "super blood wolf moon".
This name is based on the ecliptic timing and the position of the moon in relation to the Earth. Simple lunar eclipses look like moon, orange-red, due to the Earth's atmosphere due to the sun, which is why the blood-moon is called. One-year-old big moon is called "wolf-moon" (every month that gets its full moon), which will be particularly bright and great, as Earth will be closer to Earth than normal. label "super".
The entire moon eclipse will be fully visible in North America, South America, Greenland, Iceland, Western Europe and Africa. In other parts of the world people will see a partial eclipse.
According to NASA, the total lunar eclipse lasts one hour and two minutes. On the East Coast of the United States, the whole eclipse at 11:41 p.m. It will start around. local time with a peak 12:16 a.m.
In a lunar eclipse, the moon touches the outer shadow of the Earth as soon as possible, called penumbra, and they move through the shadow, called umbra. Then it becomes dull.
About 80% of the Earth's atmosphere is nitrogen gas, and the rest is oxygen. When our atmosphere takes on a white sunlight, the blue and purple blend of gas is distributed around the colors, which is why the sky is blue in front of our eyes during the day.
In a lunar eclipse, it crosses the Earth's clear blue atmosphere and refrains the red – a process similar to sunrise and sunset. That's why the moon becomes red when it's Earth's humidity.
Seeing a full lunar eclipse is not dangerous, given that a solar eclipse is unprotected, so you do not need any special glass.
