01/17/2019 12:24pm

If you thought last Januarys Super Blue Blood Moon was fun, the countdown is on for the next lunar spectacular. On Jan. 20, skywatchers will be treated to a Super Blood Wolf MoonWhat is a Super Wolf Blood Moon Lets break it down. NBC 5 Forecast: Strong Cold Front Arrives Tonight Well start off easy -- there are at least 12 full moons each year and they each have a name rooted in folklore that was often tied to seasonal markers. The Wolf Moon is simply the name given to the full moon in January.A Super Moon is a full moon that coincides with perigee -- the moons closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit. During a supermoon, the moon is roughly 50,000 kilometers closer and appears brighter and larger, even more so closer to the horizon.What about the Blood Moon A Blood Moon is the catchy name given to a total lunar eclipse due to the coppery-reddish hue seen at totality. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth and moon line up perfectly, causing a shadow to fall on the moon sunlight scattered through the Earths atmosphere causes the moon to appear a dull red.According to NASA, the eclipse will be totally visible across the Americas. NBC 5 Meteorologist Samantha Davies said it will be freezing Sunday night in North Texas with temperatures dropping into the mid 20s, but the good news is that the sky will be clear and there should be good viewing for the eclipse.Davies said the best time to see the Super Wolf Blood Moon will be at 11:12 p.m. Sunday night. The event starts at 9:33 p.m. and ends at 12:50 a.m.If youre wanting to plan out your future eclipse viewing, NASA has calculated all lunar eclipses through the year 3000. However, if youd just like to plan for this century, click here.NASA said there will be only one other lunar eclipse in 2019, a partial eclipse on July 16 that will be largely visible over Africa and the Middle East. There will be four lunar eclipses in 2020, but they are all penumbral eclipses only slightly visible.According to NASA, the next total eclipse visible in the Americas will occur on May 16, 2022. The next Super Blood Moon wil occur on May 26, 2021 and will be will be partially visible to those in North Texas.After that, The next Super Blood Moon will occur Oct. 8, 2033. Itll be a Hunters Moon and also the fourth eclipse in the next tetrad a rare grouping of four consecutive total lunar eclipses.

Non-Emergency Service, 311, Could Be Thing Of The Past In Dallas
01/18/2019 9:21pm

The three-digit help line Dallas residents have used for years to help with non-emergency issues could be a thing of the past if Dallas City Councilman Philip Kingston has his way.We really do have smart people working on it, but I am still running into those five to ten percent of people who report something more complex than a pothole who are dissatisfied with the service, said Councilman Kingston. Carrollton Turns Back Time With 80s Prom for Adults 311 is a big city operation with more than 100 full-time employees and 36 temporary workers. Councilman Kingston said this is not a matter of competency within the office, but rather the complexity of the issues Dallas residents are facing.I think people deserve to have a human being pick up the phone and have a creative problem solver for the problems they report to the city, said Kingston. It would allow us to have greater visibility into the total volume of complaints coming in. Which would also help us with some holistic thinking to prevent these things. Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo Kicks Off Friday Councilman Kingstons plan includes doing away with 311 as it exist now and routing all the calls directly to the council members offices. He said he is not suggesting they get rid of the people in 311, but the contrary, taking many of them and possibly hiring more, to cover the calls that will flood into those offices.Janet Marcum, President of the voluntary Homeowners Association of Northwood Hills, is an avid user of 311, who said she has doubts about the Councilmans new idea. Midlothian Police Looking for Man Who Beat, Robbed Teen I feel like that would inundate their offices with menial task or things that their time would be better spent on the bigger items, because we certainly have larger items that we need help with, said Marcum.Marcum said she often tells her HOA residents to use 311 to get little things done around the community they catch before she can.If they did away with 311 it would make my job harder as the President of the voluntary HOA, I encourage homeowners to use it a lot, said Marcum. I feel like if we did a better job of letting homeowners know what they can and cant do with 311 and then separating out what 311 cant handle, thats something that you need to talk to a council member about, then it will probably be used more effectively.Councilman Kingston admitted this is going to be a hard discussion to have with the City Manager and doesnt even know how far his idea will go, but that it will be worth it for the people living in Dallas in the long run.That concierge type service, thats what our citizens are wanting and thats what I think they deserve, said Councilman Kingston.Photo Credit: NBC 5 News
