hello

The super blood wolf moon lunar eclipse was visible from the suburbs and all around the world.

This combination photo shows the totally eclipsed moon, center, and others at the different stages during a total lunar eclipse, as seen from Los Angeles, Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019. It was also the year's first supermoon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer position. During totality, the moon will look red because of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere. That's why an eclipsed moon is sometimes known as a blood moon. In January, the full moon is also sometimes known as the wolf moon or great spirit moon.

A lunar eclipse progresses behind a Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow, Russia, Monday, Jan. 21, 2019. The eclipse takes place when the full moon is at or near the closest point in its orbit to Earth, a time popularly known as a supermoon. This means the moon is deeper inside the umbra shadow and therefore may appear darker.

The moon, known as a supermoon due to its slightly closer proximity to Earth, is barely visible in total eclipse over Los Angeles City Hall, one of many iconic area buildings bathed in blue light in support of the L.A. Rams in their NFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019. The eclipse came and went as predicted. The Rams defeated the New Orleans Saints and are headed to the Super Bowl.

A U.S. Flag in downtown Washington flies in front of the moon during a lunar eclipse, Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019. The entire eclipse will exceed three hours. Totality -- when the moon's completely bathed in Earth's shadow -- will last an hour. Expect the eclipsed, or blood moon, to turn red from sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere.
