All of which is to say that what you're getting is a SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON, which sounds much cooler than "total lunar eclipse", just saying.

North and South America will get the best view of the super "blood moon", as it's known, but Europeans and Africans will also be able to watch (weather permitting).

Perhaps the most noteworthy heading is "Super Moon", a full or new moon that's within 90 percent of its closest approach to the Earth.

Christian conspiracy theorists are claiming that as result of the spectacular lunar display, Christ will appear on Earth and herald in the end of days.

Orlando's Sunday evening forecast calls for clear skies, although it will be chilly with temperatures dropping to 38 degrees with a 15-25 miles per hour wind.

In the Eastern US, the Moon will be even higher, from south Florida it will be nearly directly overhead at mid-totality and from NY at mid-eclipse the Moon will be 70-degrees high. As the Moon is so close to Earth, it appears larger in the sky than usual.

Instead of reflecting sunlight as the Moon would have done at any other point, the Earth casts a shadow on the satellite.

The viewing in front of Union Station begins at 9 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

By 10:33 p.m. ET, you should see Earth's shadow start to move across the surface of the moon, growing larger and larger and larger until it completely covers it up. Eastern Standard Time, or shortly past 7:30 p.m.
