Morinville and area residents got a partially obscured view of the Wolf Moon eclipse last night but still got to see a good amount of the event.


The unusually named Wolf Moon, Super Moon eclipse is due to a combination of three things. A wolf moon is the first full moon of the calendar year. A Super Moon is when a full moon happens during the moon’s closest approach to Earth, making it appear larger in the sky. And the eclipse is an event that won’t happen until May or 2021.
