Planning to watch the Super Wolf Blood Moon on Sunday?

Moon

On Jan. 20, 2019 North and South America will be able to see the Super Wolf Blood moon, a total lunar eclipse that coincides with the moon being at its closest point to Earth.

Every full moon during the year has a name. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the January full moon is the “wolf” moon.

It’s called a “blood” moon because of the total lunar eclipse which makes the moon appear red or orange. During a total lunar eclipse, the sun, Earth and moon are aligned in space.

Alaskans should be able to view a partial eclipse, weather permitting.

Our partial eclipse will begin at 6:33pm on Sunday. With the full eclipse starting at 7:41pm and ending at 8:43pm. The partial eclipse ends at 9:50pm.

We won’t see another total lunar eclipse until May 2021.
