    Here’s how you can view the “Super Blood Wolf Moon” on Jan. 20
    By Patrick Connolly Orlando Sentinel
    Get out your telescopes: a lunar eclipse is coming soon to a night sky near you.
    This lunar eclipse, dubbed the “Super Blood Wolf Moon,” is created when the earth comes between our moon and the sun.

    Derek Demeter, director of Seminole State’s Emil Buehler Planetarium, described the features that comprise this moon’s name.
    The earth’s shadow, as well as its atmosphere, creates a deep red color on the surface of the moon, Demeter said. This is where the “Blood Moon” description comes from, a title that originated with a Twitter hashtag several years ago.

    A supermoon occurs when the moon is at perigee (the closest point to Earth), making it 10 to 13 percent larger, according to Demeter.
    The wolf moon comes from the traditional Native American name for the full moon in January.
