A rare sighting like the total Super Blood Wolf Lunar Eclipse that took place between 9:45 p.m. and midnight won’t happen again for another two years.

In January, wolf or great spirit moon can refer to a full moon. As for the red colouration on the moon’s surface, particles of light are scattered off of the earth’s atmosphere during an eclipse because the atmosphere acts like a filtered lens.

It bends sunlight into the planet’s shadow and scatters out blue light, making the red far more noticeable.

When the moon is larger and brighter it is considered a super moon due to its closer positioning to earth.

All of these natural occurrences combined had many keeping their eye on the sky.
