‘Super blood wolf moon eclipse’ worth howling about if weather clears

Heads-up for Sunday, a super 'blood moon' is on the way

"This is the period of totality, where the moon lies entirely in the Earth's umbra (full shadow) and will appear red".

The full moon is known as a blood moon when it turns a reddish-brown colour, as it is lit up by light bent into the Earth's shadow by sunsets and sunrises. The next total lunar eclipse that's positioned over North America won't be until May of 2022.

Hewitt accuses Tomic of 'blackmail' and 'physical threats'
He was responding to Tomic's claims this week that Hewitt had ruined the national system and " no one likes him any more". I drew a line in the sand and I haven't spoken to him since.

So you'll want to be bundled up for the super moon and the overnight blood moon eclipse. January 21st, February 19th and March 21st 2019 with the February full moon being the closest and largest full supermoon of the year.

CBN News previously reported about Pastor John Hagee, author of the 2014 best-selling book Four Blood Moons, and his belief that throughout history blood moons have been a sign from God to the world that something big is about to happen. The one in January is a wolf moon, a name derived from Native Americans, who heard the howling of wolves hungry for food in the dead of winter. This will be on Sunday night into Monday. The entire nine-and-a-half-hour event can be seen from coast-to-coast-to-coast, though what we'll actually be able to see will last just over four hours. The last perceptible hints of the penumbral eclipse are likely to fade from sight about a half-hour earlier than this, at about 11:15 p.m. And making it so accessible is that all you need are your unaided eyes to soak in the eclipse, which will be visible even from backyards and bedroom windows within the brightly lit city. And wolves do howl in the direction of the moon; they point their faces toward the sky for better acoustics, because projecting their howl upward carries the sound farther. Because an eclipsed moon is always full, the moon sets (or rises) at nearly the same time as the sun rises (or sets) on the opposite horizon. In all, assuming good weather conditions, this shady little drama will have a potential viewing audience of some 2.8 billion people.

Philadelphia Phillies rumors indicate Bryce Harper, Manny Machado still a possibility
With the Sox offer to Machado at a reported $175 million, the front office would be wise to not bid against themselves. But over the last few months, other teams have gotten into the race, including the White Sox, Dodgers and Nationals.

The media head said that the lunar eclipse would by 4.33am become a partial eclipse, where the moon would start getting red. The more particulate or pollution in the atmosphere, the redder the moon appears.

WALTER FREEMAN, PHYSICIST, SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY: "Minutes after 10:30 p.m". The difference in size and brightness is due to the moon's proximity to Earth.

"The eclipse, expected to be total, will begin in the evening of Sunday and end on Monday".
