Skygazers got a real treat late last night. The only total lunar eclipse this year and next came with a supermoon bonus Sunday night. The moon, Earth and sun lined up to create the eclipse, visible throughout North and South America and parts of Europe, for three hours with totality lasting about an hour. The peak viewing in Toronto was just after midnight. The name “super blood wolf moon” refers to three factors that occured all at once, making this eclipse special. “Super” because the moon is closest to earth in its orbit, “blood” refers to the colour red as the sun, earth and moon line up. “Wolf” is an indigenous term for a full moon this time of year.
