"Super blood wolf moon" will light up the night sky Sunday

How to see the last 'super blood wolf moon' lunar eclipse for 18 years Don't Miss the 'Super Blood Moon' Eclipse This Weekend

"We're going into this unusual lull in total lunar eclipses over the next couple of years", said Tom Kerss, an astronomer from the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

If skies are clear, the total lunar eclipse also will be partly visible in western Europe.

A full moon in January is also known as a "wolf moon", as Native American tribes said wolves would howl outside villages during full moons at the beginning of the year. Layer on the fact that this is occurring when the moon is at perigee - the closest point of its orbit around Earth - and you have the "super blood wolf moon".

The "blood" part of the nomenclature refers to the color of the moon during a full eclipse.

The main partial eclipse begins when our satellite dips into the inner umbral shadow at 10:34 p.m.

According to Space.com, the total eclipse will begin at 11:41 p.m. EST and peak at 12:13 a.m.; the total eclipse will end at 12:43 a.m.

Here are five things to know about the eclipse.

"The moon is going to be passing through the Earth's shadow", says Don Hladiuk with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. A supermoon is a full moon that occurs during that time.

"I would really encourage it", he said. "It's a natural phenomenon that still intrigues us".

According to Accuweather, it will be the first total lunar eclipse visible in its entirety across the United States since December 21, 2010.

The eclipse will officially start at 2.36am but the best viewing will start from 3.33 am when the moon will be high in the south west. A little bit of sunlight sneaks through Earth's atmosphere, bent and scattered by the thin sheen of gases blanketing our planet.

As sunlight passes through Earth's atmosphere, our blanket of air strips out the short-wavelength blues and yellows and leaves only the longer-wavelength oranges and reds.

Do you need a telescope to photograph the eclipse?

"The next (partial) lunar eclipse is on the night of July 16/17 this year, and the next after that are on January 10 and June 5, 2020, when they will be penumbral".

Astronomy and Astrophysics researchers at the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), said on Saturday that there was nothing to fear over the expected total lunar eclipse on Monday.

Informational videos, posters, and handouts will explain the term "supermoon", what causes eclipses, and why eclipses make the moon turn red. This means each eclipse is essentially identical to others that have occurred previously. However, solar eclipses are much more complicated - and not only because they require special protection for your eyes.

The USGS has also said that there may be a correlation between the lunar cycle and eruptions of Hawaiian volcanoes, but that attempting to predict eruptions around tides or the moon "would be absurd".
