The super blood wolf moon will appear in the night sky on the evening of January 20 and last approximately 62 minutes, according to NASA.

No, it's not a death metal band - it's a rare lunar phenomenon that will occur on January 20.

In the early hours of January 21, there will be a super blood wolf moon eclipse.

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.

This full moon will not only be a supermoon - meaning it appears bigger and brighter to the naked eye - but also coincides with a lunar eclipse in the UK.

He said a total lunar eclipse is like a meteor shower: "You don't need equipment to enjoy it, you just go outside, and there it is". The earth casts its shadow completely on the moon, causing the moon to appear red or rust colored. The Super Blood Wolf Moon will grace the night-side of Earth that includes South America, the Eastern Pacific Ocean, the Western Atlantic Ocean, and Extreme Western Europe. What makes it so extraordinary is it will be a rare Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse.

A very cool sounding event is happening in 2019.

Put those three moons together and you end up with a super blood wolf moon eclipse. The "wolf" moon was named after the wolves that would howl out of hunger in the dead of winter. There are usually 12 full moons in a year and each one has a traditional name.
