Super Blood Wolf Moon sounds sort of like a really weird metal band that your friend started back in middle school. In reality it is a total lunar eclipse.

This eclipse will have a red tinge to it and can only be seen in North America.

Luckily that's where we are!

On the night of January 20 and into January 21 you'll be able to see this eclipse.

The event will start at 9:36 p.m. and the total eclipse will commence at 11:41 p.m.. The event will end at 3 a.m.

So why the ridiculous name?

The Full Wolf Moon will pass through the upper half of the Earth's shadow on January 20, that shadow will cause the moon to have a red tint. This is where the term 'blood" comes from.

The moon will be very near its closest distance to the Earth, this adds the word "super" to the name of the event.

Let's hope the skies are clear!

The Weather Network has a complete schedule of the eclipse here.
