The Solar Eclipse

Home » The Solar Eclipse

The Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse was visible on January 29, 2019 in areas all over the world. A lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes behind Earth and causes a shadow to creep across the moon at different stages. This type of lunar eclipse will not be visible in North America again until 2022. But that’s not all that happened. “As if a super blood wolf moon wasn’t enough, some observers noticed another spectacular sighting in the sky Sunday night: a small flash of light. During the lunar eclipse, a meteorite struck the moon” (May, 2019). Meteorites are space rocks (meteors) that enter the Earth’s atmosphere. They are made of rock and/or metals.
