'Super blood wolf moon eclipse' will take place on January 20

'Super blood wolf moon eclipse' will take place on January 20

Astronomy fanatics are in for a treat January 20, when Earth will pass between the sun and full moon to create a total lunar eclipse that will turn the moon's silvery shine into a blood-red glow.

A super moon is a new or full moon that happens at the time of the month when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit.

Another total lunar eclipse is happening nearly a year after 2018 Super Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, only that it will not be a "blue" one this time around.

The event will take place on the night of January 20 leading into January 21, depending on the viewer's time zone and which part of the eclipse they're seeing. It will finish on January 21 starting at 9:36 pm EST and end at 2:48 am EST. On Jan. 20, the moon will be about 222,274 miles from Earth as a full moon. The full eclipse will end at 12:43 a.m., but if you stay awake long enough, you can watch the moon return to its bright, silver self.

It's a combination of three separate things - a super moon, a wolf moon and a lunar eclipse.

The newspaper says the next total lunar eclipse will happen on May 26, 2021. It turns it a rusty, red color. Also, the full moon is both a Supermoon and a Blood Moon, which obviously explains why it is named Super Blood Wolf Moon.

Why is it called the Super Blood Wolf Moon? It will as well be the first and last to occur across the winter skies of Northern America within the next three years.

A very cool sounding event is happening in 2019.
