So what exactly is a lunar eclipse? A lunar eclipse occurs only during a full moon when the sun, moon, and earth are in perfect alignment. It's quite a spectacle to see as the moon turns bright red, otherwise known as a Blood Moon, so you won't want to miss it.
Visible on the evening of Sunday, January 20 through the early morning hours of Monday, January 21, Southern Californians will get a chance to see this spectacular event.
Unlike the recent solar eclipse in 2017, this upcoming lunar eclipse is safe to look at with the naked eye.
This won't be any ordinary lunar eclipse as it's also going to be a wolf moon. Never heard of a wolf moon? It's referring to the first full moon in a calendar year. The eclipse will occur during a supermoon, which will also make it extra spectacular.
You'll definitely want to experience this rare event, as the next opportunity to see a full lunar eclipse won't be until 2021. Make sure to mark your calendar as it's almost here.
Where do you plan to experience this rare event? It's definitely worth remembering so make sure to carve out some time to see this beautiful and mysterious occurrence. It will be stunning!
