On Sunday night, look up to the sky.

According to Space.com, this will be the first total lunar eclipse that will be visible before midnight from start to finish in the majority of the U.S.in 19 years.

Astronomers and skygazers are particularly interested in this year's Super Blood Wolf Moon, as it is the last of its kind for two years.

According to CNN, this eclipse is being called the super blood wolf moon in reference to Native American roots.

A blood moon takes place during a lunar eclipse but instead of the full moon disappearing entirely, as it happens during a normal eclipse, it turns a rusty shade of red.

The entire event, which includes total as well as partial lunar eclipse will reportedly last for three and a half hours. Moon gazers in Central and Eastern Europe will see the moon set before it's entirely free of Earth's shadow. This phase is extremely subtle and hard to see. This is when the moon moves into the darkest part of Earth's shadow, the umbra. The reddish light that reflects back toward us gives the moon a blood-red tone.

The total eclipse of the moon will last 62 minutes, starting at 8:41 p.m. The colors you see will be all of the Earth's sunrises and sunsets refracted onto the moon by our atmosphere. This will create a phenomenon, which illuminates the moon. On this day, the Science Center will be open from 9 a.m. through 1 a.m.to celebrate the eclipse.

As for why this is a "blood" moon, lunar eclipses make the big white dot in the night sky appear red. When observing the eclipse live or virtually, you are watching the moon's orbit around Earth. The close passes are called perigee. The upcoming supermoon will be about 357,300km away.

The blood moon's red hue is the result of sunlight traveling through the Earth's dusty, polluted atmosphere, Fazekas said. You will also use this observation to figure out where the moon is in the sky.

Are you going to watch the lunar eclipse? A "wolf moon" is simply the folk name for a moon that happens in the month of January.

Documenting a lunar eclipse is pretty easy. Earth, of course, is tilted on its axis.

It won't be the stars aligning, but the moon, the Earth, and the sun rather, in what is sure to be a breathtaking celestial event.

"So this is a really good one to catch, as it's going to be a long time before you catch another one like this".

The math is a headache, but these moments are very predictable.

This eclipse will also be visible in north-western France, north-western Spain, Portugal, a small part of west Africa, nearly the whole of North and South America, the eastern Pacific, and the north-eastern tip of Russian Federation.

It is the last chance for United Kingdom observers to see a total lunar eclipse in its entirety until 2029.
