The Super Blood Moon Is Real!
By The Editors
It sounds fake—and honestly like the perfect start of a novel—but there's going to be a Super Blood Wolf Moon tonight! This will be the only total lunar eclipse we will get all year. Only those in North and South America can enjoy the full effect. So why the name? Per NASA: "super' because the Moon will be closest to Earth in its orbit during the full moon (more on supermoons here) and “blood" because the total lunar eclipse will turn the Moon a reddish hue." The beginning of the total lunar eclipse will occur at 11:41 p.m. EST, with the most dramatic moment set for 12:12 a.m. EST.
In honor of tonight's spectacular event, we wanted to bring you an illustration by artist Steven John Fuchs of Arlington, Virginia. The illustration depicts the artist and his son David observing the lunar eclipse in 2000. Learn more about Fuchs at StevenJohnFuchs.com and check out his science fiction graphic novel Soyuz Blue.
Now go out and savor that Super Blood Wolf Moon!
