We will soon get a glimpse of the rare ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ Total Lunar Eclipse, nearly a year after the Super Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse took over the sky.

Set your calendar for the night of January 20th to the 21st. According to the Weather Network, the “Full Moon will pass through the northern half of the Earth’s shadow, producing a Total Lunar Eclipse.”

And it will be even more magical than previous ones, because it will be visible from all across Canada. Not only that, but it will also be larger and brighter than normal.

But of course, in order to get the best vantage point for this, you should go as far away from the city lights as you can get. Parks, remote and rural areas are typically better for catching a glimpse of this natural wonder.

There won’t be another Total Lunar Eclipse for all of Canada to see until May of 2022. In BC, the eclipse will start around 6:36pm and end around 11:48pm.
