When time is the lunar eclipse tonight
By Patrick May | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: February 18, 2019 at 7:00 am | UPDATED: February 19, 2019 at 1:35 am The headline used by Travel & Leisure magazine about the big moon this week says it all: “It’s going to look massive.” OK, so it’s not going to be quite as impressive as last month’s Super Wolf Blood Moon, a total lunar eclipse that turned red. But Monday night’s Super Snow Moon still promises to blow your mind, assuming you’re lucky enough to see it in clear skies. Also called the Storm Moon and Hunger Moon, because they’re passing through at the chilliest time of the year, this full moon will be closer to us than at any other time in 2019, the report says. Here are some things to know about the big show: What is a supermoon? A supermoon occurs when the moon’s orbit is closest to Earth (called the ”perigee”) and when it is also full, according to NASA.

Skywatchers, space lovers and moon howlers, this is your night. The so-called "Super Blood Wolf Moon," the only total lunar eclipse in 2019, happens tonight and is visible in its entirety in New York. Although there are clouds now, Storm Team 4 says it there will be a window when the skies clear and it might align with the eclipse. Anyone interested in seeing the phenomenon should check after midnight -- and bundle up. The phenomenon gets its name because of it’s “super” close distance to the Earth and it’s visibly “blood”/reddish hue. The title of “wolf” is given to the January full moon. This particular instance is rare since it is uncommon to have a supermoon during an eclipse, according to NASA. See Inside World's Biggest Aircraft (Glass Floors, Anyone?)

Picture: DAVID MURTON/DARSHAM ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY DAVID MURTON/DARSHAM ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY With less than 24 hours until the lunar eclipse, will the skies stay clear enough to see the lunar phenomenom? The blood moon is set to unfold in the early hours of Monday, January 21, meaning eagle-eyed stargazers will need to set their alarms for the chance to see the early morning spectacular. Chris Bell, a forecaster at East Anglian-based Weatherquest, said the likelihood of East Anglia being able to see it is “tricky to call”. He said: “The skies will be clear tonight for most of the region but clouds will be increasing from the north West by the early hours of Monday morning,“There will be some clear spells but clouds will begin after midnight from the West. As the eclipse will occur looking … [Read more...] about Will the skies stay clear enough for us to see the blood moon?
Alert your coven, because a total lunar eclipse is taking place tonight (Sunday, January 20). This isn’t an ordinary total lunar eclipse, either, but a supermoon, which means that it will seem even bigger and brighter. According to NASA, that’s because the moon is at perigee, its closest point to Earth in its orbit. Oh, but it gets better: This lunar eclipse isn’t just a supermoon, but will mostly likely also be a blood moon, when some light still makes it way around the Earth’s shadow, giving the moon an orange-red hue. Some folks are also throwing “wolf moon” into the mix, a name given to any full moon that happens in the month of January. For those keeping track: Yes, that means the celestial event will be a super blood wolf moon, sure to inspire b-grade Hollywood scriptwriters and death metal bands searching for a name.
