The Next Lunar Eclipse Will Be Visible From Delaware And You Won’t Want To Miss Out
Delawareans have a reason to look up to the heavens one night this month – and no, it’s not for a rocket launch this time! In just a few weeks, the skies above the First State will show off a rare phenomenon that’s sure to impress even the pickiest stargazer.
On January 20th, Delaware will be front-and-center for a rare celestial show: the Super Blood Wolf Moon.
During the night of January 20th, a rare total lunar eclipse will be visible to everyone in the First State. Be sure to set an alarm, because you won't want to miss this!
While the term "Super Blood Wolf Moon" may seem outrageous, it's accurate.
A super moon means it will be closer to earth than usual, a wolf moon is the first full moon of the year, and the blood moon part? Well, that's because of a total lunar eclipse!
Find a spot away from city lights - local parks or back roads will provide the darkest skies for viewing the bright red eclipse.
You can also attend the Eclipse viewing party at the Delaware Museum of Natural History. Check out the details
You'll see the moon start to turn red around 9:36 p.m., and by 12:12 p.m., it will be in totality. Monday morning, around 2:48 a.m., all will once again be normal in the skies.
Mark your calendars for January 20th, 2019 - you won't have another chance to see a total lunar eclipse in Delaware for two more years.
May 26, 2021 marks the next time the earth will come between the moon and the sun.
