Super Blood Wolf Moon Lunar Eclipse 2019: The total lunar eclipse is expected to last for 62 minutes. Indians interested in watching it live can tune in to Griffith Observatory to get a close-up view of the total lunar eclipse.
The Super Blood Wolf Moon Lunar, which is a total lunar eclipse, began on Sunday (January 20) and will be visible around the world including North America, Central America and South America on January 20 and 21.
The total lunar eclipse is expected to last for 62 minutes and for the first time it will be visible entirely across the United States. Unfortunately, the total lunar eclipse will not be visible in India, Australia and Asia.
An eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth’s shadow and the Sun, Moon and Earth line up in space.
Meanwhile, the term Blood Moon originates from the eclipse which is expected to happen just before the full moon. The color of the moon is expected to be dark reddish-orange in color. Nasa says the color of the Blood Moon depends on dust and clouds in the atmosphere.
Indians interested in watching the event life can tune in to Griffith Observatory to get a close-up view of the total lunar eclipse.
According to Griffith Observatory, the eclipse will be visible anywhere from southern California and there is no special equipment required. Many other observatories are also live streaming the event for all those who are based outside the US.
It will take place roughly at 11:41 EST, which translates to 10:41 am in India.
This event is special as it will be the only total lunar eclipse in 2019 and you will have to wait at least 2 years for the next one.
