An unusual set of circumstances will combine in the early hours of Monday morning in the skies above the northern hemisphere, resulting in a phenomenon called a super blood wolf moon.

"A total lunar eclipse will give an apparent reddish colour to the lunar surface – known as a blood moon. At the same time, the moon will be slighty closer to Earth than normal and appear slightly bigger and brighter than usual – a phenomenon called a supermoon.

In January, the full moon is also sometimes known as the wolf moon or great spirit moon – hence the super blood wolf moon."

Totally amazing answer to prayer! We had clouds ALL day and sprinkles and then when I went out to look at the lunar eclipse during the time it was supposed to be total coverage, the moon managed to break through the clouds for me to watch. I'm not sure if my photo's are any better then the last lunar eclipse we had though.

BUT I GOT TO SEE IT!! I'm so happy!! I shared the moment with friends and family far away and with millions....billions of people around the world!

<then when I ran in to get my tripod and set it up and get back out it was raining!.

"The sky-gazing spectacle — the biggest event since last month’s “super blood wolf moon eclipse” — will feature a supermoon, meaning the moon is both full and at its perigee, the point in its orbit where it’s closest to the Earth, Space.com reported. The event will officially occur in the morning, but when the moon crosses the night sky, it will be brighter than at any point of the year, or even until 2026...The term “snow moon” has historically been given to the second full moon of the winter, when more snowfall is recorded, by some Native American tribes, according to NASA."
