For the first time in three years, the United States will be able to experience a total lunar eclipse. According to NASA, it will be one of the sky’s most dazzling shows, as the moon will be at its closest point to Earth, making our moon appear bigger and brighter, an event that is often referred to as a “supermoon.”
 
That’s not the only thing that will make this eclipse awesome. Total lunar eclipses are often call “blood moons” because when the sun, Earth and moon align, the sunlight that passes through the Earth’s atmosphere will appear to turn the moon red. And because lunar eclipses can occur only during a full moon — and the first full moon in January is known as a “wolf moon” — many are calling this spectacular event a “Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse.”
 
At around 12:12 a.m. ET, people in North and South America, as well as those in western parts of Europe and Africa, will have front-row seats to this show.
