The Eclipse of 2019 - Super Blood Wolf Moon
It's not every day you get to witness a 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' eclipse. On the night of January 20th 2019 such an event was visible from Vancouver BC and is captured here in this collage photo. A 'super moon' is one which occurs when the moon is nearly at its closest orbit from the earth and makes it appear bigger and brighter, while a 'blood moon' is a phenomenon from the scattering of light through the earth's atmosphere resulting in a red hue. Lastly the 'wolf moon' indicates that this is the first full moon of the new year. The results as you can see are quite beautiful and mesmerizing!
