A rare phenomenon called the super-blooded wolf moon was visible through Huron County at the beginning of last week.

Without a special equipment, the moon appeared red for about half an hour, which led the stargazers despite the cold weather and a snowstorm.

Direct sunlight is blocked by the Earth, which in turn causes the only light that is able to achieve is the sunlight that is refracted by the Earth's atmosphere.

Due to this, it seems that the moon seems to change from white to color wales.

Paired with the moon like a super moon, which happens when the moon is closer to the Earth during its elliptical orbit, the moon was very visible at first sight.

The term wolf moon only comes from the fact that it is the first full moon of the year.

These three phenomena were combined to produce a spectacular spectacle since the clock reached midnight.

According to the representatives of NASA, this was the only lunar eclipse total that will take place in 2019.

The eclipse lasts approximately 40 minutes, with the peak of the eclipse that happens at 00:12 on Sunday, January 20.

Climatic conditions compromised the visibility of the eclipse, but enthusiasts could see the eclipse as the conditions began to clear at 11:00 p.m.

The next lunar eclipse will be on May 16, 2022.
