In the past year, Super Blue Moon was featured with a red tinge which was caused through the shadow of Earth by the moon itself.

So what exactly is a super blood wolf moon eclipse? It is likely to be occurring on January 20.

After the Super Blood Wolf Moon dazzles in January, the next total eclipse of the moon won't happen until 2021. According to the source, the full moon will become dark red-orange which can enter the Earth's shadow.

A rare triple header of lunar loveliness will take place the night of January 20-21, when we'll see a total eclipse of the moon (by Earth), with the moon also a "super" moon since it'll be at it's closest point to the Earth, and the moon will be a wolf moon, because that's what the first full moon of a calendar year is called.

Interestingly, the total lunar eclipse happening in winter 2019 will not be just like any other. The moon is said to be a "Super Blood Wolf Moon" because of its larger size.

The first total lunar eclipse of 2019 - also called a wolf moon - is expected to be both a supermoon and a reddish-copper blood moon.

Above all, the event will take place in the night where the entire moon will be at its closest distance from the Earth.

This will be the last total lunar eclipse so easily visible in North America until May 2022, so be sure to schedule time to view it.

The eclipse will be visible Americas, Greenland, Iceland, western Europe and western Africa.

How did the eclipse get its unique name? It's called the "wolf moon" and is named after the howling wolves. Totality will happen around 9:12 p.m. PST or 12:12 a.m. EST on January 21, yet Forbes recommends taking a seat a hour heretofore to watch the moon change from incomplete shroud to add up to overshadow. On Jan. 20, the moon will be about 222,274 miles from Earth as a full moon.
