JACKSON HOLE, WYO –Another year, another eclipse for Wyoming. Here we go again!
OnlyInYour State is reporting the rare phenomenon and when you should be looking to the stars.
Wyomingites may hear the word “eclipse” and instantly groan. After all, it wasn’t long ago that our state was completely overrun with tourists hoping to watch a total solar eclipse. Restaurants were packed, hotels were booked months in advance, and the traffic! Well, buckle up, Wyoming, because another eclipse is on the way. Luckily, this one is visible from a much wider area and we shouldn’t expect too many tourists to head to Wyoming in the dead of winter to see the January Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse.
A Super Moon occurs when a full moon’s orbit brings it closest to earth, making the moon larger and brighter than normal. A Wolf moon is the name used for the first full moon of the year. And a Blood Moon occurs when the earth’s shadow casts a bright red color. A Wolf Moon is simply the name used for the first full moon of a calendar year.
For five hours, you’ll be able to see this phenomenon in action. Starting Sunday, January 20, 2019 at 7:36pm, the earth’s shadow will cast on our moon. By 10:12pm, the moon will be in totality. As the night goes on, the shadow will move away, and the moon will return to normal by 12:48am on Monday the 21st.
Don’t forget to set your alarms and stay up for this—the next Total Lunar Eclipse won’t occur until May 26, 2021.
