Where and when to watch Sunday's total lunar eclipse in AZ

Where and when to watch Sunday's total lunar eclipse in AZ

For many stargazers, it's the highlight of the month.

While Asia had a prime viewing last year, when two total lunar eclipses occurred, this year the continent is not as lucky.

"If you think about sunset and sunrise, the sunlight is traveling through the atmosphere and you get the nice red colors", Jolliff said.

The moon also will appear large, because it will be at a point in its elliptical orbit that's close to the Earth. Supermoons usually happen 3-4 times a year. Earth's orbit around the moon is not perfectly round, so as it circles Earth it is sometimes closer and sometimes farther away, by a distance of about 26,000 miles. Only when that coincides with a full moon or a new moon is it called a supermoon. All you have to do is go outside and look up. The latter happens during the day, so can't be observed, and is therefore of little interest to moongazers.

Hagee told CBN News in the past, "The evidence is very clear scripturally that God controls the sun, moon and stars - that God is sending us a signal through the sun, the moon and the stars". January's full moon was referred to as the Wolf Moon. It appears larger and brighter and there are often great photos as it rises up from the horizon.

A ruddy lunar eclipse hangs over Mount Rainier in 2015. Popularly known as a "blood moon", these are relatively rare events, though this is the third of three in the previous year.

Weather permitting, the entirety of North and South America will be able to witness the Earth cast its shadow upon the moon.

With the "blood moon" part of the eclipse, Brian Murphy, director of Indiana's Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium and Butler University professor said although the moon is in Earth's shadow, some sunlight still reaches the moon. The moon will turn a copper orange colour as the earth blocks out the light from the sun. There's no actually wolf connection to the moon here.

Sunday will mark the final time a lunar eclipse and a supermoon occur at the same time until May 2021.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon, Earth and sun line up with us being in the middle.

People will be able to watch a total lunar eclipse and blood moon in the county overnight on Sunday and early on Monday morning.

The total eclipse will begin in the Central time zone at 10:41 p.m. and reach totality at 11:13 p.m., ending at 11:43 p.m. And, January's super moon is also called a wolf moon. The moon will be at its bloodiest, most super and wolfiest just after midnight. The same optical effect turns Earth's skies red at dawn and dusk. It's also know as old moon. Those dates are it for 2019, with the next full moon supermoons not until March 9 and April 8, 2020, and the next new moon supermoon on October 16 and November 15, 2020.
