12 photos of the Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse over Calgary

Jan 21 2019, 4:44 pm

Stargazers Moongazers were in for a serious show last night.

On Sunday evening, Calgarians were treated to a full wolf moon creating a total lunar eclipse, and yes, it was as amazing as it sounds.

According to The Weather Network, since the moon would be “very near perigee – its closest distance to Earth,” the result was a Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse.

And while the events alone aren’t totally uncommon, when they are combined they make for a spectacular display.

The next total lunar eclipses will be visible in Canada on May 26, 2021, and May 15, 2022.

Many Calgarians braved the -10°C temperatures to capture the stunning sight, which is good news for those of us who might have missed it.

If you weren’t able to catch a glimpse of this incredible showing, here are some photos taken of the Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse from all across Calgary:
