The super moon of 2019 has appeared on January 21, but because there is a total lunar eclipse on the other side of the earth at this time, China is just in the daytime, so you can't see this spectacle. But don't worry. There will be super moon in 2019. Do you want to know how many days there are?
When is the super moon in 2019
2019 super moon is on January 21, February 19 and March 21. Are you ready to watch it with whom? Super moon refers to the phenomenon that the moon is near the perigee when the full moon occurs. According to reports, because the orbit of the moon around the earth is non-standard ellipse, the average distance between the earth and the moon is about 384000 kilometers, the perigee distance is less than 360000 kilometers, and the apogee distance is more than 400000 kilometers, so the full moon at the perigee point is about 14% larger than the full moon at the apogee point, and it is about 30% brighter. As a result, the perigee full moon is also known as the 'super moon'.
However, the Chinese public may not have access to the super moon on January 21, because there is a total lunar eclipse on the other side of the earth at this time. In 2019, when three 'super moons' occur, the moon is very close to perigee. Among them, on January 21, the full moon occurred at 13:16, China time, and the distance between the earth and the moon was about 357300 km; on February 19, the full moon occurred at 23:54, and the distance between the earth and the moon was about 356900 km; on March 21, the full moon occurred at 9:43, and the distance between the earth and the moon was about 360700 km. Among them, tomorrow, January 21, when the "super moon" occurs, there is an annual astronomical drama "super total eclipse" on the other side of the earth. Unfortunately, China happens to be in the daytime, and the public is out of luck with this astronomical spectacle.
Where to see the 2019 super moon
2019 super moon is the best observation site in North and South America, and Chinese audiences may not be able to see the super moon on January 21. Three lunar phenomena will come together this weekend to create a moon called "super blood wolf". This spectacular celestial show will light up the sky of many countries in the world. And this event will be even more amazing, because the super blood wolf moon seems to be painted with evil blood red.
Lunar eclipse in 2019: the super blood wolf moon is most prominent in the United States. This year's total lunar eclipse will be even rarer as it is the first to be seen in North America in three and a half years.
It is strongly recommended that you catch the next super blood wolf month on May 26, 2021.
The eclipse will last nearly 3.5 hours, starting with the partial eclipse phase, when the earth's shadow first bites from the moon at 10:34 p.m. ET / 3:34 a.m. et.
