The Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse (yes, that's really what it's called!) will occur overnight January 20-21.

A supermoon occurs when the moon is within 90 percent of its closest possible distance to the Earth.

So where does the name Super Wolf Blood Moon come from?

As previously mentioned, the difference in size and brightness is due to the moon's proximity to Earth.

What is a "blood moon"? On January 20th there will be a "Blood Moon" lunar eclipse where the Earth's shadow will cast on the moon.

Tests carried out by future missions could lay the groundwork for building on the moon's surface, by testing technologies like 3D printing or the use of moon soil in construction, he said.

Depending on the amount of water vapor, clouds, water droplets, dirt, dust and ash in the atmosphere at the time of the eclipse, the moon will appear in various shades of red compared to previous lunar eclipse events.

While a large part of the world will see the total lunar eclipse, the best viewing will be in North and South America. The full eclipse starts at 7:41 p.m. and ends at 8:43 p.m. Full eclipse will be reached around 11:40 p.m. and last for just over an hour.
