The ideal positioning of the Moon on the ecliptic on July 2, 2019 causes a total solar eclipse, but two weeks later it's nearly as well positioned when it's on the other side of Earth.
So what is a super blood wolf moon and why does it get such a metal name? This eclipse will be partially visible in many parts in India, while the shadow track can be seen from some parts in Kerala, he added. However, Africa, Europe and Asia all get some kind of view of a weird-looking half-full moon turning slightly red. A total lunar eclipse - the "Super Blood Wolf Moon" - will occur on January 20/21, 2019 (depending on where you view from in North and South America, or western Europe).

During a partial solar eclipse, the Moon, the Sun and Earth don't align in a perfectly straight line, and the Moon casts only the outer part of its shadow, the penumbra, on Earth.
Super Blood Moon is scheduled to bright up the skies on January 20 and 21, 2019. Astronomy Magazine's senior editor Michael Bakich says the Moon is always safe to look at because, "just like objects here on Earth, we see it because it reflects sunlight".
"Do not forget the Mercury Transit in November as it's the last one until 2032", warns Xavier Jubier from Paris, France, an eclipse-chaser and member of International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group on Solar Eclipses.
See, simple. Now you're basically Galileo.
A partial solar eclipse is when the Moon covers only a certain portion of the Sun.
On July 2, the partial eclipse will begin at 12:55pm EST.
Partial umbral eclipse ends: 10:51 p.m. (January 20) The moon completely exits the shadow.
The next total solar eclipse to hit the United States will happen on April 8, 2024 and will pass across the eastern part of the country.
