'Super blood wolf moon' eclipse to darken skies

This is when the moon is closest to earth, and there's a total lunar eclipse.

The super blood wolf moon eclipse will occur at 12:12 a.m. ET on January 21, but you'll be able to watch the moon turn from white to orange in the hours beforehand. For a shadow, it will be quite bright: Before a potential audience of almost three billion people, the moon will gradually transform into a glowing copper-colored orb, tinted by sunlight bouncing off and passing through the air in our planet's dense atmosphere. It is also a super moon, which is the time that the moon is closest to earth in its orbit.

Christian conspiracy theorists are claiming that as result of the spectacular lunar display, Christ will appear on Earth and herald in the end of days.

"You don't need any special equipment to see a lunar eclipse", Hayne said.

The "Blood" part comes from the way the sun's light passes through Earth's atmosphere during the eclipse.

"As long as skies are clear you'll be able to view this fantastic event with the naked eye", said Jeff Rosenblatt, Planetarium Director.

Freezing drizzle may precede the snow with a light glaze possible this morning along and south of a line from Albion to Omaha. New York City could see 2 to 3 inches of snow and 1 to 2 inches of sleet, with Philly receiving a bit less of both.

All three things will be happening at once: a super moon, lunar eclipse, and a full moon.

In the USA, the eclipse will begin relatively early Sunday evening, making it easier for children to stay up and enjoy the show. The subsequent umbral phase - when the Earth's shadow covers most of the moon - will occur for another hour. And fortunately the eclipse is also taking place on the eve of the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, when many Americans have the day off from work or school-so feel free to stay up late!

Three elements make a "super blood wolf moon", but the part that makes it so rare it happens only three times this century is the least impressive.

How long will the total lunar eclipse last?

The moon, Earth and sun will line up this weekend for the only total lunar eclipse this year and next. Totality - when Earth's shadow completely blankets the moon - will last 62 minutes, beginning at 11:41 p.m. EST Sunday.

Cassidy was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior with a victim younger than 16 years old. According to Palm Beach County Jail records, Cassidy is being held on a $1,500 bond.

The eclipse will transition from penumbral to partial eclipse at about 8:34 p.m. MST. A "wolf moon" is simply the folk name for a moon that happens in the month of January.

So why does the Moon appear red?

The next full moon, known to some as a Wolf Moon, will be a super moon. The eclipse will conclude just before 2 a.m. However, India will not be able to witness this lunar eclipse.

"A little bit of sunlight is refracted by the Earth's atmosphere... bending around the edges of the Earth" before reaching the moon, causing the reddish tint.

Hence, the Super Blood Wolf Moon.
