Rare Super Blood Moon in Houston This Week

If you enjoy stargazing, keep May 26 on your calendar because a super blood moon will be visible from Houston! A full moon, a supermoon, a blood moon, and a partial lunar eclipse will all be visible. The super blood moon, as well as a total lunar eclipse, will be visible in the early morning hours.

Even though, a blood moon sounds like something out of a horror movie, it is actually a scientific phenomenon in which the moon appears red due to light reflection. 

A total lunar eclipse consists of three eclipses: a penumbral lunar eclipse, a partial eclipse, and then the total lunar eclipse.

SUPER BLOOD MOON IN HOUSTON

While the first two phases are not likely to be visible in Texas, the total lunar eclipse will be visible for 14 minutes, along with a super blood moon. At 6:11 a.m., the total lunar eclipse will begin, with the greatest eclipse occurring at 6:18 a.m., and the event ending at 6:25 a.m. Also, keep in mind that the date is May 26th.

The supermoon, also known as the super flower moon, will look to be the year’s largest and brightest full moon.

There won’t be another partial lunar eclipse in Houston until November, so don’t miss out on this event!
