Super Wolf Blood Moon

Super Wolf Blood Moon

By Anya McCue

Last Sunday, there was a total lunar eclipse, called a “Super Wolf Blood Moon” a phenomenon that won’t happen again until 2021.  When the eclipse reaches its totality the full moon does not disappear, but instead it turns a reddish color and that is where “blood moon” gets its name. This moon was also closer to earth than usual making it appear bigger and that is where it gets its name “super-moon”.  As for the wolf part of its name, it comes from the full moon in January which is normally called a wolf moon. All of America was able to see the moon on that night, so hopefully you saw it as well!
