Shortly before sunrise on Monday, January 21, a total lunar eclipse and super moon will be visible in Ireland.
The first full moon in January is called the Wolf Moon.
A super moon occurs when the full moon is at the closest point to Earth, making it appear larger and brighter than usual.
A lunar eclipse is often called a “blood moon” because as the Earth’s shadow blankets the moon, sunlight is refracted through the atmosphere, giving the moon a red glow, reports the Irish Examiner.
These combined factors result what stargazers call a “Super Blood Wolf Moon.”
“This one is particularly good," Rice University astrophysicist Patrick Hartigan told The Daily Mail.
“It not only is a supermoon and it's a total eclipse, but the total eclipse also lasts pretty long.
“It's about an hour.”
The eclipse will be visible in North and South America, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and the French and Spanish coasts. A partial view of the eclipse will be visible in the rest of Europe and in Africa.
In Ireland, the eclipse will occur from 3.34am to 6.51am Irish Time.
It will be visible on Sunday evening for those in the U.S.
