The Next Lunar Eclipse Will Be Visible From Montana And You Won’t Want To Miss Out
We’re less than a week away from a rare celestial event—a total lunar eclipse. This rare eclipse will be fully visible from all of North America, including Big Sky Country, so mark it on your calendars and get ready to be amazed.
On January 20-21, we'll experience a rare total lunar eclipse known as a Super Blood Moon.
A full lunar eclipse occurs when Earth comes between the sun and the full moon. So the Earth, sun, and moon must be lined up perfectly for it to happen.
The moment the total lunar eclipse occurs, the moon will appear to turn red, hence the term Super Blood Moon.
In fact, this event is being called the Super Blood Wolf Moon. Supermoons happen when the moon is closest to Earth during orbit, and a wolf moon marks the first full moon of the year... hence the amazing name.
The total lunar eclipse will last approximately five hours.
In Montana, you can expect to start seeing the eclipse at 9:41 p.m., with the peak time being 10:12 p.m. The total eclipse will end at 10:43 p.m.
The clearer the night sky is, the better you'll be able to see the total lunar eclipse, which tends to happen only once every two years.
This eclipse will be fully visible in North America and South America. It will be partially visible from almost everywhere in the world.
Will you watch this magnificent natural occurrence? Here in Montana, we truly appreciate
nature and all its wonders.
