Total lunar eclipse visible across California

Total lunar eclipse visible across California

That's the Super Blood Wolf Moon super-mooning the earth Sunday night - the only total lunar eclipse this year replete with a supermoon bonus.

And a blood moon is what happens with a lunar eclipse, the moon takes on a reddish/orangish tint. To be even more precise, the Royal Astronomical Society said viewers in northwestern France, northwestern Spain, Portugal, the eastern Pacific and northeastern tip of Russian Federation would see the total eclipse.

The Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and some universities held public viewing events Sunday night, attracting lots of astronomy enthusiasts. This can only happen when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned (in syzygy), with Earth between the other two.

This event, however, is a penumbral lunar eclipse.

The January eclipse stunned space enthusiast around the world as the Super Blood Wolf Moon turned a deep shade of red overnight. In January, it's known as the "wolf moon", inspired by hungry wolves that howled outside of villages long ago, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

In addition to the Americas, the entire lunar extravaganza could be observed, weather permitting, all the way across the Atlantic to parts of Europe.

Rare 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' to Appear in Skies Sunday Night - a Sign in the Heavens?

The moon didn't go completely dark, but glowed a slightly red tint as "a result of sunlight being filtered and bent through the Earth's atmosphere", similar to a sunset.

This will be the last lunar eclipse of 2019 and the next one will not appear before January 10, 2020. "This is why we don't have a lunar eclipse every month".

The Virtual Telescope Project shared a live stream of the lunar eclipse at its brightest above the skyline of Rome.

The rare alignment of our star, moon and home is called a 'Super Blood Wolf Moon.' And there won't be another like it until 2021.

And unlike solar eclipses, the lunar eclipse was safe to view with the naked eye or binoculars.
