Heads Up: A Super Blood Wolf Moon Is Coming

Outer space is kicking off 2019 with a big bang. This weekend, stargazers can look forward to a trio of lunar events that culminate in what's being called a "super blood wolf moon." Morning Shift checks in with Michelle Nichols, the director of public observing at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium, on just what the heck a super blood wolf moon is, and other celestial events to watch out for in 2019. She also talks about how the Adler is celebrating its Year of the Moon, including the fittingly-named LunaPalooza.
