In the past year, Super Blue Moon was featured with a red tinge which was caused through the shadow of Earth by the moon itself.

Together, the events will create a phenomenon known as the "super blood wolf moon" - a nod to a Native American term for full moons in January. A supermoon is when the satellite is to the closest point from the Earth during its elliptical orbit.

Charles R. Alcock, director of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said a total lunar eclipse is "wonderful to see, so if we're fortunate to have a cloud-free night, it's actually worth staying up for it".

The first total lunar eclipse of 2019 - also called a wolf moon - is expected to be both a supermoon and a reddish-copper blood moon. This happens when Earth interferes with the Sun and Moon, making the Sun's light curve towards the Moon-henceforth the creepy ruddy tone.

It seems that this will not be just any regular blood moon, but a super blood moon, according to the latest reports.
