Total lunar eclipse: Super Wolf Blood Moon visible in the Netherlands

Adjust Comment Print

Viewed from the US east coast the moon will enter Earth's umbra just a few minutes after 10:30 P.M., with the full lunar disk falling wholly into shadow for slightly over an hour, beginning at 11:41 P.M.

In the USA, the eclipse will begin relatively early Sunday evening, making it easier for children to stay up and enjoy the show. Light with longer wavelengths - like orange and red - refract, or bend, around the Earth where it eventually reaches the moon. That mean that when the moon is at its closest point to Earth - known as the perigee - it can appear up to 17 percent larger than it does at the farthest point in its orbit.

Sometimes the eclipsed Moon is a deep red colour, nearly disappearing from view, and sometimes it can be quite bright.

Edmontonians will have the chance to view the lunar eclipse in style Sunday evening while celebrating with space-themed activities at the Telus World of Science. The partial eclipse is expected to conclude just before midnight.

We get two to five supermoons every year, while the gap between blood moons is anywhere from six months to about three years.

The "wolf" part is said to originate from a Native American tradition of referring to January's full moon as the Full Wolf Moon.

Experts say there will be four more eclipses this year. Without an atmosphere the Moon would appear black or even totally invisible when it was within Earth's shadow. While not all that rare of an event, the moon will be 356,000 km distant, making it less than 50,000 km closer than most of the time.
