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

In the early hours of January 21, there will be a super blood wolf moon eclipse. The moniker refers to the Full Wolf Moon, which will pass through the upper half of the Earth's shadow on the night of January 20.

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.

This lunar trifecta will take place January 20.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is positioned between the sun and the moon, casting the moon completely in the Earth's shadow and giving it an organish, "bloody" look.

January 21 marks the date for our full moon. What makes it so extraordinary is it will be a rare Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse.

The newspaper says the next total lunar eclipse will happen on May 26, 2021. A supermoon occurs when the moon reaches the closest point in its orbit, making it appear bigger and brighter in the night sky. The moon becomes the Blood Moon as its color turns coppery red because of light refraction. The same celestial event will again happen in May of 2022.

It's a combination of three separate things - a super moon, a wolf moon and a lunar eclipse. In Native American times, hungry wolves would be seen near the towns and villages at a full moon. The "wolf" moon was named after the wolves that would howl out of hunger in the dead of winter.
