A rare, lunar eclipse will take place this Sunday night. It is called the Super Blood Wolf Moon.
The name is derived from three lunar events, happening at once:
Super Moon is when the moon is closest to the Earth.
Wolf Moon is Native American for the first full moon of the year.
Blood Moon occurs when the Earth and the moon line up, and the shadow of the Earth casts a reddish glow.
The lunar event will last about five hours, beginning at 8:36p CST – our time – TONIGHT.
BEST TIME to see it: From about 10:30 to 11pm.
- You do not need protective glasses to view the lunar eclipse.
