UAE will observe its first Super Moon of 2019


The total lunar eclipse is set to take place in the early hours of Monday morning, along with a red hue on the moon's surface.

"We're going into this unusual lull in total lunar eclipses over the next couple of years", explained Tom Kerss, an astronomer from the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

"How gold, orange, or red the Moon appears during a total lunar eclipse depends on how much dust, water, and other particles are in Earth's atmosphere, as well as factors such as temperature and humidity", according to NASA.

As the moon moves completely into the earth's shadow at 10:41 p.m., something interesting happens: The moon begins to turn reddish-orange. Combined, this makes a super blood moon. This can only be possible when the Sun, Earth and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned and having the earth between them.

The name "super blood wolf" refers to multiple features of the upcoming eclipse.

And since it appears in January, when wolves howled in hunger outside villages, it has earned the name wolf moon, according to The Farmers Almanac.

According to, in perigee the moon appears almost eight percent wider than the average full moon. For the cost of $12 for adults and $8 for children, attendees can watch a live feed of the eclipse indoors and also view a screening of a new presentation called "Imagine the Moon".

You can spy on the eclipse with your bare eyes, but you might see more details on the blood-red moon if you have binoculars or a telescope, Hartigan advised. Only the red part of the refracted sunlight hits the moon during a lunar eclipse.
