Super Wolf Blood Moon Eclipse
SEND US A MESSAGE
The Super Wolf Blood Moon Eclipse showed brightly in the late hours of Sunday, January 20. This stunning image was captured by Photographer Matthew Breiter of Long Prairie at the lift bridge in Duluth. The nearly two hour eclipse began around 9:30 p.m. shifting from a shining full moon, to a red hue and back. The name for this moon comes from the Supermoon when a full moon is at its closest to earth. Wolf Moon is the name given to the full moon in January, and Blood Moon is for its red hue during the eclipse as the sunlight is refracted and filtered through the Earth’s atmosphere. The next lunar eclipse will occur in May 2021 and the next one visible from the U.S. will be in 2022.
