The moon turns red during a total lunar eclipse in Giv'atayim, Israel, July 27, 2018.

On Sunday, there will be a super blood wolf moon. Translated, that means a total lunar eclipse while the moon is closest to Earth during January.

Weather permitting, it should be really spectacular, and the Fleet Science Center is holding an event to mark the occasion.

The event will include a presentation by Lisa Will, the resident astronomer at the Fleet. The San Diego Astronomy Association will also have telescopes out for those in attendance to use.


The eclipse will be visible from San Diego beginning at 6:36 p.m., while the full eclipse will be visible beginning at 8:41 p.m. and ending about an hour later. The partial eclipse will end by 10:50 p.m.

Will, who is also an astronomy professor at San Diego City College, joins Midday Edition Thursday to discuss Sunday's eclipse.
