Blood Moon on show for much of the world

Blood Moon on show for much of the world

Reportedly, it will be visible after sunrise in China, North and South Korea, Japan, Russia and over the North Pacific Ocean and the Aleutian Islands, and including a tiny portion of Alaska before sunset. It can also lead to some pretty incredible photography, as we saw in 2017 when the path of totality crossed the continental United States. By 3:40pm EST, the partial eclipse will be over as well, and the moon's shadow will have passed across the continent and back over to the Atlantic Ocean.

Any glimpse of the sun's brightness is not only uncomfortable, it's unsafe.

The retina may translate light into an electrical impulse that the brain understands, but one thing it can't translate to your brain is pain.

Lunar eclipses aren't as rare as solar eclipses and they are a lot easier to watch because you don't need safety equipment. The problem is, you won't know whether it's temporary. Keep in mind cloud cover may prevent you from seeing the eclipse.

Still don't believe it? So please, read the tips so you can enjoy the eclipse without worrying about going blind.

These events bring out internet excitement: the British Daily Mail tabloid consulted an astrologer about one full moon a year ago and is already breathlessly calling this event a "Super Blood Wolf Moon".

For just over an hour, the Moon will turn red for viewers in all of North and South America, and a few areas of Western Europe and Africa.

This does not mean that after December 10th these devices will stop working, but they will not receive updates. It'll provide a bit of extra time for backups and such after that date, but Windows Mobile is basically dead.


This eclipse is first of six to occur this year.

As 2019 goes by, two lunar eclipses and three solar eclipses can be viewed.

The next total lunar eclipse seen from Canadian soil will take place on May 16, 2022, when the east and central part of the country are favoured to see the entire eclipse.

The Super Blood Wolf Moon is one of five eclipses this year.

Traveling a different path from the 2017 eclipse, the next one will be visible in Mexico, the central United States and eastern Canada, with a partial eclipse visible across North and Central America.
