Wolf moon set to light up the night sky

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

Although it is set to be a late Sunday night, there is no shortage of activities inside the centre in the lead-up to the eclipse. That's when the eclipse will be at its climax - the Earth, moon and sun will be exactly lined up in an eclipse.

"Super Moon" - a full moon that appears bigger than normal because it's at its closest point to Earth during its orbit.

Finally, full moons are given monthly names, and this one happens to be the "wolf" moon.

Over time, monthly full moons have acquired different names. This occurs when the Moon, Earth and Sun align, with the moon behind the Earth, in its shadow.

So bundle up, enjoy the clear skies and see what a super blood wolf moon looks like on Sunday night and Monday morning.

The last time this combination of lunar phenomena occurred was back in 2015.

In the United Kingdom, the Moon will be above the horizon throughout the eclipse, although from southeast the sun will have risen as it comes to an end.

Lunar eclipses take place cyclically, on nights when the moon passes through the shadow of our planet backlit by the sun.

Digital Spy quotes McQuarrie as saying on Twitter " Missions: Accepted " in his announcement of the two new films . Director Christopher McQuarrie is also a part of the writing team of Top Gun: Maverick .

The eclipse is expected to last a little over five hours and should start around 7:30 p.m. Sunday in Alberta. "Ancient Greeks and others knew the Earth was round because of its shape on the shadow of the moon". Some sunlight reaches the Earth's atmosphere, which envelops the moon and gives it the rich colour.

The moon, Earth and sun will line up this weekend for the only total lunar eclipse this year and next. This super blood moon is going to be fun because we will be able to see the moon and the stars in the same sky - usually the moon is too bright to see the stars at the same time, according to the Cherokee of the early 1800s. Only when that coincides with a full moon or a new moon is it called a supermoon.

The next supermoon, on February 19, will be a bit closer and the one in March will be the farthest of the three. And even if you miss it, my advice to anyone in these kind of situations that are momentary is don't be disappointed.

NASA serves up a year-by-year list of total, partial and penumbral lunar eclipses. There's no actually wolf connection to the moon here.

You can also look for livestreams of the "super blood wolf moon" eclipse if it won't be visible where you are.

If you just want to see the thing, you can walk outside at 12 minutes past midnight on the U.S. East Coast (9:12 p.m. on the West Coast) and look up.

"During totality, which will last 62 minutes, the moon will appear to glow like an eerie ball - which to the eye, and especially in binoculars and small telescopes - will appear nearly three dimensional", Joe Rao, an instructor at New York's Hayden Planetarium, wrote in a Space.com column.
