And, January's super moon is also called a wolf moon.

The total lunar eclipse of January 2019 promises to be a spectacle to behold, and may be visible to millions across North and South America, weather permitting. Pacific Standard Time, Earth's shadow will start passing in front of the moon from the lower left, and about an hour later, the full lunar eclipse appears.

The star-studded celebration takes place on the terrace of Seminole State College's McGee student center, adjacent to the Emil Buehler Planetarium.

The eclipse will also be visible partially in other parts of the world, except around Asia and Australia. The total eclipse begins at 9:41 p.m. and should last about an hour.

What is a blood moon?

There will be three full supermoons in coming months.

A Wolf Moon is a the Native American name given to the first full moon of the year each January. The "screen" is the full moon, and the "movie" is the progression of Earth's shadow across the face of the moon. It's a lunar eclipse that comes at a particular time in the satellite's orbit.

In the Eastern US, the Moon will be even higher, from south Florida it will be nearly directly overhead at mid-totality and from NY at mid-eclipse the Moon will be 70-degrees high.

For the Chicago area, this will be the last visible total eclipse until May 15, 2022. The National Weather Service's outlook for Sunday night calls for cloud cover over a wide swath of the Pacific Northwest, so if you're a Seattleite, your best bet for seeing the eclipse may well be to watch it online.

The levies targeted hundreds of billions of dollars worth of Chinese goods previous year and forced Beijing to retaliate. China's trade growth slowed in 2018 as a tariff battle with Washington heated up and global consumer demand weakened.

At around 5.12am GMT, the Moon will reach so-called maximum eclipse when it is closest to the Earth's shadow. Sunday's observatory event is all-ages and doors open at 8:30 p.m. Ticket price is by donation only. The only light wavelength left is red - dimly illuminating the moon with less than one-thousandth of the full moon's normal brightness.

As NASA explains, Earth casts a red shadow because of how our atmosphere scatters light.

Why should you try and see it?

Because the moon's orbit around Earth is slightly tilted with respect to Earth's orbit around the sun, an eclipse doesn't occur every time it passes behind our planet.

Finally, the eclipse will end at 2:48 a.m. EST (11:48 p.m. PST), when the moon is also fully out of the penumbra, according to NASA. I prefer to reserve that designation for the closest and brightest moon in a given year (which occurs in February this year).

The next full moon, known to some as a Wolf Moon, will be a super moon.

The good news is that blood Moon does not require any eye gear to watch from anywhere if skies are clear enough, unlike solar eclipses that require special eye protection. All you have to do is look out the window or step outside the house.

During the lunar eclipse on September 27, 2015, the eclipse appeared dimmer than expected, possibly from ash spewed by a volcano in Chile, Nichols said.
