Interpreting the super blood moon

Head to the east side to catch a glimpse of a lunar eclipse happening tonight

January's usual weather conditions - with chilly temperatures for much of America and cloudy skies in the Pacific Northwest - aren't exactly ideal for tracking a total lunar eclipse, but Sunday night's "Super Blood Wolf Moon" actually lived up to the hype. A cold but clear winter night across Canada gave witnesses an ideal view of the blood-coloured moon. The next chance for a glimpse at a lunar eclipse will be in May 2021, two years later.

The Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles shared an image of the rusty-colored moon - which was to be the last total lunar eclipse visible in the United States until 2022.

A picture taken on January 21, 2019 the Super Blood Moon seen behind the equestrian statue of the Saxon king Johann during a lunar eclipse in Dresden, Germany. At the peak of the spectacle, sunlight passed through Earth's atmosphere and lit the moon, making it appear to glow red.

Netflix also mentioned that it is directly competing and losing against globally iconic game: Fortnite . The company saw 8.8 million paid net additions, higher than Wall Street's expectation of 7.6 million.

A total lunar eclipse happens when the earth comes between the sun and the moon, covering the moon with its shadow. February's full moon is traditionally known as the Snow Moon, so brace yourself for the #SuperSnowMoon hashtag.

Canada and the USA won't have another chance to see this phenomenon again until May 2022.
