What time is the Full Wolf Moon Eclipse in Toronto?
First Full Moon eclipse of 2020 will happen Friday, January 10th. The Full moon eclipse is called a Full Wolf Moon Eclipse.
Why do they call it a Full Wolf Moon?
Lunar eclipses are called blood moons, because of their reddish colour. … Aside from eclipses, the January full moon is often called the Wolf Moon, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, and may date back to Native American tribes and early Colonial times when wolves would howl outside villages
The Full Moon Eclipse will happen at around 2:21 pm so people in Toronto will be able to see the Full moon but not the Eclipse. Depending where you live in Canada here are the times of the Full Wolf Moon Eclipse:
• 11:11 am PST
• 12:11 pm MST
• 2:21 pm EST
The reason we will not be able to see the full lunar eclipse is because the moon is below our horizon at that time.
So get ready to see the large moon in the sky Friday night. The next full lunar eclipse will be in May 2020.
Do Wolves Howl at the Moon?
The scientific community has no indication that the Moon phase plays any particular part in the calls of the wolf, but wolves are nocturnal animals, so they are in general more active at night. And wolves do howl in the direction of the Moon; they point their faces toward the sky for better acoustics, because projecting their howl upward carries the sound farther.
