The Next Lunar Eclipse Will Be Visible From Idaho And You Won’t Want To Miss Out
As we all saw during The Great American Eclipse that took place in August 2017, Idaho is a fantastic place to view some extraordinary natural events. In fact, there’s another rare event coming up and you’ll want to be sure you don’t miss it. A lunar eclipse is expected to take place later this month, but don’t be fooled. This isn’t your typical lunar eclipse. Lucky for, Idaho is home to some of the darkest skies which are perfect for viewing a natural phenomenon like this one. Keep reading for all the details!
Mark your calendars for January 20-21. On this particular night, a trifecta of lunar activities will take place and you definitely don't want to miss it. Idahoans will be in for a real treat when they look up at the sky and see what is being called a "Super Blood Wolf Moon".
So, what exactly is a Super Blood Wolf Moon? It sounds pretty cool, that's for sure! In fact, it's the combination of a total lunar eclipse, a super blood moon, and a wolf moon. The result is a unique phenomenon that resembles something from a Sci-Fi movie.
This is bound to be a sight that you don't forget any time soon. The stars will be much more visible since the moon will have less than 100th of its usual brightness. The moon itself will appear a reddish copper color. It promises to be a breathtaking scene as long as the weather cooperates.
Scientists predict that the next lunar eclipse won't occur until 2021, so you'll want to catch this one if you can. The eclipse can be viewed from all of North America, South America, and parts of Western Europe and Africa. Additionally, Idaho's dark skies make it the perfect viewing place for such a phenomenon.
You don't have to travel to anywhere fancy to see it. Although, staying away from any sort of street light, and blue light especially, is considered the best practice for eclipse viewing.
The lunar eclipse will take place from around 7:36 pm on Sunday, January 20, until 12:48 a.m. on Monday, January 21. This means that even those who like to hit the hay early will have a chance to see this magnificent event.
