In Photos: Super Blood Wolf Moon
The world witnessed year’s first super-moon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer position on Jan. 20, 2019. The Earth will slide directly between the moon and the sun, creating a total lunar eclipse. There won’t be another until 2022.
Sky-watchers howled at the moon at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles when the full lunar eclipse appeared shortly after 9 p.m. Pacific time on Sunday and our celestial neighbor was bathed reddish-orange during a Super Blood Wolf Moon.
More than 1,500 people gathered at the observatory near the city’s famous Hollywood sign to watch the eclipse. The best viewing of the one-hour total eclipse was from North and South America, with as many as 2.8 billion people able to see it from the Western Hemisphere, Europe, West Africa and northernmost Russia.
