It was a combination of multiple factors as this year’s only total lunar eclipse took on a red hue.
Dubbed a super blood wolf moon, the eclipse took to the sky for approximately three hours, with the red colour at its most vibrant shortly after 9 p.m.
The super portion of the title is when a full moon is larger and brighter than usual attributed to it’s distance from Earth. Blood moon, while not the scientific term, is when a fully lunar eclipsed moon takes on a red or orange tint. Lastly, a wolf moon is the full moon in January.
