Skygazers are in for a treat this weekend.
On Sunday, January 20, almost exactly one year after the sighting of a Super Blue Moon lunar eclipse, Canadians will be treated to a full wolf moon creating a total lunar eclipse.
According to The Weather Network, since the moon will be “very near perigee – its closest distance to Earth -” it will be a Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse.
And no, we didn’t make that name up.
The eclipse is expected to last a total of five hours and 12 minutes, with the total eclipse lasting for an hour and two minutes.
The total lunar eclipse will begin at the following times, based on where in Canada you live:
- 8:41 PST
- 9:41 MST
- 11:41 EST
Should the skies remain clear, everyone in Canada will have a chance to see it. The next total lunar eclipse that’s positioned over North America won’t be until May of 2022.
So keep this Sunday in mind — you’ll want to have a clear view of the sky and a camera ready when the day comes.
