A piece of good news for the stargazers as the world will witness a total Lunar Eclipse or the Super Blood Wolf Moon on the night of 20th and 21st January. Today, the moon will appear reddish and also closer to the Earth and it can be seen today for three and a half hours.
However, this phenomena can be seen at 7:34 pm Pacific Standard Time on 20th January.
The Lunar Eclipse will be visible around the world including North America, Central America, South America, Sweden, Portugal, France, Britain and Spain among others. While in India and other Asian countries, the Chandra Grahan can’t be seen.

However, the Super Blood Wolf Moon’s name finds its origins in the Old Farmers’ Almanac, a book on astronomical data, weather prediction.
On the other hand, Full moon in January is often referred to as a full wolf moon. During the lunar eclipse, the moon will appear to glow like a red ball as a result of sunlight being scattered and refracted around Earth.
