Millions of people around the world will experience a partially red-colored night sky, because this weekend is a rare celestial event: the "super wolf blood moon" eclipse.
In North America, for at least three years, there has been no proper picture of this special stage, and it is not expected that another complete Moon eclipse – what happens when the entire Moon enters the Earth's shade – will not happen again by 2021, according to NASA.
“On average, there is a little less than one moon eclipse per month per month. The lunar eclipse can only happen during the full moon when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth, ”says Fox News, Assistant Professor of Physics at Walter Freeman, Syracuse University. "But the Moon's orbit is slightly bent over the Earth, so usually when the Moon is full, the Earth's shadow goes slightly above or just below it. So we don't have a moon eclipse every month."
RARE “SUPER BLOOD MOON” ECLIPSE WHO YOU ADD TO STUNNING DISPLAY IN JANUARY: WHAT TO KNOW
The total lunar eclipse of 2019 will last about 1 hour and 2 minutes, Space.com reports. It will start at. ET on January 20th and maximum 12:16 ET ET on January 21st
“The moon will not be completely invisible at the time when the Earth's shadow covers it completely! A bit of sunlight relaxes the Earth's atmosphere and reaches the Moon, bending around the Earth's edges. This small amount of red light still illuminates the Moon so we can see it. Instead of being bright and white, the Moon will be very dull and red, ten thousand or more times than usual; people call it "Blood Moon," Freeman explained.
"Instead of being light and white, the Moon will be very dull and red, ten thousand or less times than usual …"
Here's what you need to know before the big moon phenomenon.
What will be the "queue center"?
North and South America and Western Europe and Africa will be able to see rust-colored Moon Night from January 21st to January 21st. Central and Eastern Europe and Asia will only be able to see the partial lunar eclipse this time, depending on the time and date.
The eastern coast of the United States will definitely be the "best places" when it comes to the supercar of the supercar. In this part of the country, the Moon is expected to "climb up to extraordinary heights," says Space.com.
According to space visibility, the Moon will rise further south, especially around Orlando and Miami. And part of Cuba, it will be "just above the head" under Space.com.
How do I watch it?
Unlike solar eclipses that require special equipment to view the astrological event, you don't need anything to discover this celestial event.
Just make sure you are in a dark place and possibly wrap some binoculars if you really want a clearer picture. Don't forget to give yourself extra time before darkening is done. It takes about 20 minutes for the eyes to adjust to darkness.
"We can get really good science from what happens to the moon's surface during all moon eclipses, but again, the cool thing is that the moon changes color," Noah Petro, an explorer of Goddard's Space Flight Center in Maryland, previously told Space.com. "It's fun to see – it's benign, but it's a change. And whenever we see a change in heaven, it's always exciting."

"The West Coast is now a very active week with a wide rainfall that causes localized floods and heavy mountain snow," Janice Dean, senior meteorologist at Fox News, said on January 14th.
Such western activity will then determine the model of the potential return of winter precipitation in the middle of the west – and in the northeastern parts of the country that have spent snow this year, Dean warned.
