An unusual set of celestial circumstances came together on Sunday night and the wee hours of Monday morning to produce the "super blood wolf moon" for sky watchers in Europe, Africa and the Americas. It was a blood moon because the Earth's shadow completely covered the moon, giving it a reddish glow. A supermoon - it was 2019's first - is when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit during its full phase, making it appear bigger and brighter.
The last total lunar eclipse, which occurred in July, was visible only over parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
Hence the name for this year's event: a "super blood wolf Moon".

What is a blood moon and is it different to a total lunar eclipse?
On Sunday, 20 January 2019, we had nine telescopes at the Camino Real Marketplace Plaza to view the lunar eclipse. The moon appeared bigger than normal, with a red cast as sunlight was refracted through the Earth's atmosphere. Whenever this process of refraction happens, the moon is given the nickname "blood moon". The moniker "Wolf Moon" was given to every January moon by Native Americans. When the moon began to "bleed", the Arawak Indians were fooled into giving Columbus and his crew food.
