Total Lunar Eclipse Expected at the End of AFC Championship Game

Total Lunar Eclipse Expected at the End of AFC Championship Game”

Events include a special presentation in the renovated Zeidler Dome about the geometry of the eclipse as well as a peek at the new S.P.A.C.E. Gallery featuring a real piece of the Moon.

A supermoon occurs when the moon is within 90 percent of its closest possible distance to the Earth.

What Carolinians will see is a "blood red" colored moon that appears larger and brighter than normal on the horizon, according to AccuWeather.com.

And lastly is the 'Wolf Moon, ' a name given to the first full moon of the year. From Hawaii to ME, all 50 states will have a chance to see it - the most widely visible lunar eclipse in the United States since October 2014. This is known as the blood moon.

Depending on where you are in the country, the moon might "turn a copper-orange-reddish color", according to a January 7 article Forbes magazine.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon, Earth and sun line up with us being in the middle.

We get two to five supermoons every year, while the gap between blood moons is anywhere from six months to about three years. Over the course of just an hour, an ever-bigger, dark shadowy bite will appear to be taken out of the moon until 11:40 p.m. when totality begins -- when Earth's shadow completely engulfs the lunar disk.

While binoculars are nice, people can enjoy watching the lunar eclipse with the naked eye, and - unlike during a solar eclipse - no additional protection is needed, Sullivan said.

For most onlookers this will be the most intriguing part of this astronomical treat as the moon dramatically undergoes its colour change.

The outcome depends a great deal on how much dust is in Earth's atmosphere, he said. Day - off, so have no worries about staying up late howling at the SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON. The reason there's any color to the eclipse - or to sunsets and sunrises, for that matter - is because red light makes it through our atmosphere better than blue light, and the light cast on the moon during an eclipse is light that's peeking around the edges of the Earth through our atmosphere. It will be the first full moon of the year (a "wolf moon").

The Super Blood Wolf Moon will be cool to watch literally and figuratively. The last supermoon/lunar eclipse occurred in 1982.
