Finland to see 'super blood wolf moon' Monday

The First 3 Full Moons Of 2019 Are Supermoons and tomorrow is going to be first among them. As long as the weather cooperates, the "super blood wolf moon" will be visible across the U.S., Europe and parts of Africa and Russian Federation.

If the skies are clear enough tonight, we'll be able to see not only a lunar eclipse, but a super blood moon as well.

As the moon moves completely into the earth's shadow at 10:41 p.m., something interesting happens: The moon begins to turn reddish-orange. During the phenomenon, the moon appears red as it is illuminated by sunlight filtered through the Earth's atmosphere. This particular eclipse is even more special than usual, as the Moon will be a tad closer to us than it normally is. It is a super moon because the full moon coincides with the satellite's pedigree, its closest approach to Earth. Since earth is in the middles, it block sun's light and the little light that bounces off its edge lit up moon that makes it appear red. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, Native American tribes named each of full moons - this one referring to howling canines outside of villages.

The moon will renter the penumbra and the process for ending the partial lunar eclipse will begin.

According to experts, "this lunar phenomenon is particularly good because the duration of the total eclipse is unusually long".

In the second phase, a partial eclipse will appear.

During the eclipse, the Moon will still be visible, but in a shade of red. The total viewing is about 5 hours and 12 minutes.

The eclipse is set to start at 2.36am on Monday January 21, though people are unlikely to see anything until later in the morning. When the Earth passes directly between the sun and the moon, we get an eclipse.

The Royal Museums Greenwich intend to host a Facebook Live event from 4am, where viewers can watch the grand spectacle. The moon will be at the absolute middle of Earth's umbra at 12:12 a.m. on Monday, at which the red color will be most striking. Those in the western hemisphere will be treated to a rare celestial alignment known colloquially as the "super blood moon".
