It will be visible from locations in the north Pacific and northeast Asia, which includes Beijing, Irkutsk in Russia, Seoul, Taipei, and Tokyo.

A blood moon is simply the name given for the color that the moon turns during a total lunar eclipse, when the sunlight passing through the Earth's atmosphere bends around the planet and scatters the shorter wavelength light (blues and greens) and leaves the redder end of the spectrum to fall onto the moon's surface.

The Moon occurs when the moon is slightly bigger and brighter because it's at the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit. This Super Blood Moon is also known as "Wolf Moon" or Super Blood Wolf Moon.

Peak night will begin around 3 a.m. ET until dawn on May 6. "The two eclipses I am most looking forward to are the Jan 21 total lunar eclipse, and the July 2 total solar eclipse visible from Chile and Argentina", says Fred Espenak, retired NASA astrophysicist and eclipse expert based in Arizona Sky Village. Totality is at 9:12 p.m. PST on January 20 and 00:12 a.m. EST on January 21 from North America. It can also lead to some pretty incredible photography, as we saw in 2017 when the path of totality crossed the continental United States. It will not be visible in India, Pakistan, Europe and North America.

You won't even have to stay up late, because the show conveniently begins at 7:34 p.m. June 2021, again, a partial sun Eclipse - as is the case with most of the SoFis here are just a tiny part of the sun will be obscured.

"The Transit of Mercury requires a telescope and a solar filter", warns Espenak. The good news is that, unlike a solar eclipse, the spectacle will be safe to look at.
