BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Late Sunday and early Monday morning, there was a super blood wolf moon eclipse. It lasted a little more than 4 hours from start to finish, according to NASA.
The weather was perfect for viewing the Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Eclipse in southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi. The eclipse peaked locally just after 11 p.m.
A super blood wolf moon is a combination of three separate things - a super moon, a wolf moon, and a lunar eclipse.
The wolf moon is just another name for the first full moon of the year, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
And then there’s the blood moon.
It’s a lunar eclipse that causes the moon’s appearance to change as it enters Earth’s shadow. It turns it a rusty, red color.
This was the last time a lunar eclipse and a super moon will occur at the same time until May 2021.
