The 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' will be visible over Orlando this weekend

The 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' will be visible over Orlando this weekend

The Super Moon eclipse on September 28, 2015 as seen from Avon, Conn. There's no violence involved, instead, the term comes from a reddening of moon, as light leaks around the edge of Earth.

A "super" moon occurs when the moon is especially close to earth, while a "wolf moon" is the traditional name for the full moon of January, when the howling of wolves was a sound that helped define winter, according to The Farmers Almanac.

According to the Weather Network, the full moon will be 357,728 kilometres from Earth around midnight on Sunday, so it won't just be red, but it will also appear larger in the sky.

Sullivan, who objects to the recent trend of naming ordinary full moons and celestial events with words like "super" and "blood", said there is, however, a legitimately interesting lunar event coming: a total eclipse.

Gotta say, the girl has a helluva lot more class than I would, especially considering how fresh it is. In December, he posted a tribute to her on her birthday saying, "Thrilled God put you in my life".

Then, the fun begins as the moon enters the umbra or darker shadow.

Past year saw a "super blue moon" total lunar eclipse, but a mostly cloudy day made for a spotty view at best. Unlike solar eclipses, the lunar varieties are safe to watch. And yes, he said, the first full moon of the year was reportedly called a "wolf moon" by at least one Native American tribe.

First, let's look at the "blood" part of the name. Sadly most of New Zealand will miss out - with the eclipse being only visible in the top half of the North Island at moon set, Nasa predicts. But the weather forecast for much of the US doesn't look good. The first total lunar eclipse to follow January 21's event will occur on May 26, 2021, and will be visible over the Pacific Ocean, with viewing possibilities in North America, South America and east Asia. People on the East Coast of the United States will have the best view of the eclipse. Sunday's eclipse will nearly coincide with that perigee, meaning that the moon won't just be redder than usual, it will also look a tiny bit wider.

WALTER FREEMAN, PHYSICIST, SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY: "Minutes after 10:30 p.m". Pacific Standard Time, reach totality between 8:41 and 9:44 p.m. and be over by 11:48 p.m. For a shadow, it will be quite bright: Before a potential audience of almost three billion people, the moon will gradually transform into a glowing copper-colored orb, tinted by sunlight bouncing off and passing through the air in our planet's dense atmosphere. Farther south, the moon will appear even higher. 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.
