It's being called a "Super Blood Wolf Moon", and it will be visible across all of the continental US, starting on January 20, and reaching its peak on the following night January 21.

The total lunar eclipse will be witnessed on the evening of January 20 to 21 wherein the rare Super Blood Wolf Moon is going to pass through the northern half of Earth's shadow, according to meteorologist Scott Sutherland who revealed the news through The Weather Network.

Total lunar eclipses are often called blood moons because they cause the moon to take on a deep red color. On Jan. 20, the moon will be about 222,274 miles from Earth as a full moon.

A supermoon occurs when the moon is within 90 percent of its closest possible distance to the Earth. There are usually 12 full moons in a year and each one has a traditional name.

A very cool sounding event is happening in 2019.
