Sunday the “Super Blood Wolf Moon” is set to take place in the night sky, and many are asking how they can catch it and what’s behind the name.
According to UVic’s observatory, the total eclipse will be between 8:42 and 9:44 p.m.
Skygazers may start seeing the moon change after 6 p.m.
It’s “Super” as the moon will be closer to Earth and appear slightly bigger and brighter than usual. Wolf refers to it being a January full moon and blood is in the name as the eclipse will create a red color on the surface of the celestial body.
Victorians are crossing their fingers, as clouds are in the forecast for tonight.
Other viewpoints like Mount Doug and Mount Tolmie are expected to have many visitors.
