Complete list of dates for every full moon in 2019

Super Blood Wolf Moon 2019 Date and Timings Know About The Rare Astronomical Phenomenon Occurring in January

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is positioned between the sun and the moon, casting the moon completely in the Earth's shadow and giving it an organish, "bloody" look. A supermoon is a point during the month when the Moon is closest to Earth and it appears about 14 percent larger in the sky.

The last total lunar eclipse happened in July.

This lunar trifecta will reach its peak at 12:16 a.m. ET on January 21 and will last about 3 hours and 17 minutes from start to finish, according to NASA. The Super Blood Wolf Moon will grace the night-side of Earth that includes South America, the Eastern Pacific Ocean, the Western Atlantic Ocean, and Extreme Western Europe. The full eclipse will end at 12:43 a.m., but if you stay awake long enough, you can watch the moon return to its bright, silver self. This year's full moon just so happens to coincide with a lunar eclipse and a supermoon. The moon becomes the Blood Moon as its color turns coppery red because of light refraction. The "wolf" moon was named after the wolves that would howl out of hunger in the dead of winter.

A very cool sounding event is happening in 2019.

Put the three together, and you have the "Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse".

Finally, the "wolf moon" is just another name for the first full moon of the year.

The Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is also a rare one.
