Super Blood Wolf Moon - Weather in SE La.

Looks like viewing in the South Eastern part of Louisiana will be at its best. One of my weather sources (The Weather Underground - http://wunderground.com) is projecting 39F, 30.32 inHg, 3% hummidity and only a 6 mph wind from the NNW.... clear skies, cold, high pressure and low humidity.

Time to find a place with good view, no air pollution and as little light pollution as possible. The fewer street lights you have around, the better you will be able to see the red tinting of the Moon.

The Moon should be high in the ESE sky at about Az/Alt 94/51 degrees. The Moon will be closer to the Earth than normal at a scant 222,329 miles (357,805 km)

Summary of viewing for the 2019 Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse on Jan. 20th

Below is a horrible animation with voiced explanation of what is going to be happening with the eclipse on January 20th. My voice is stressed due to my disorder and I jumble some words, but you should be able to understand what to expect.

The video begins at 8 pm CST on Jan 20th and ends at 1:55 am. The length of the video is a little over a minute. The time at the bottom of the video is the actual time of occurrence on the 20th in Central Standard Time.

I hope you enjoy!

I'm currently working on building my skills with my system so that I can produce an actual series of photos of the actual event that I can combine into a video. For example, my photo of Venus is one such trial. Over the next two days, I will be attempting to catch Mars.
