The incredibly blood wolf moon lunar eclipse (yes, a mouthful) enhanced the skies late-night on Jan. 20, 2019, as our only satellite started its trek into Earth’s external shadow or penumbra, at 9: 36 p.m. EST (6: 36 p.m. PST). At 10: 34 p.m. EST (7: 34 p.m. PST), the partial stage of the eclipse started as the moon inched into the umbra, the darkest part of Earth’s shadow. At that point, a reddish orb of darkness appeared to sneak throughout the moon’s face. The peak of the program, the overall eclipse, took place in between 11: 41 p.m. EST (8: 41 p.m. PST) and 12: 43 p.m. EST (9: 43 p.m. PST), when Earth’s umbra had actually completely swallowed up the moon. Here’s a take a look at the stunning eclipse, seen by millions throughout North and South America, parts of western Europe and north Africa.
