Super Blood Wolf Moon

A 'super blood wolf moon' (no, I don't know either!) is predicted for the early hours of Monday 21 Jan 2019.
It starts at 02.37 and finishes at 07.48. Totality is between 04.41and 05.43.
I understand that a 'Super Moon' is when the Moon is closer to Earth in it's orbit and that the 'Blood' refers to the red colour during totality, from the light refracted through the Earth's atmosphere. I don't know what 'Wolf' refers to.
Weather is predicted to be clouds, but with some breaks.

Happy Moongazing!

A fascinating video from Youtuber Anton Petrov. Basically, it's an incredible photo of a section of the Universe, compiled over many years from data from the Hubble Space Telescope.
I've watched several of Anton's videos, and he is always clear and concise in his explanations and never goes deeply into the maths or physics of the subject.

The video can be found here -


And the image that he refers to can be downloaded for free from here (be warned, they are huge files and he states it crashed his computer when he first tried to open it) -
