People will be able to watch series of events which include lunar eclipse, super blood moon and a “Wolf Moon” or Super Blood Wolf Moon.

Unfortunately, the event will not be visible in most parts of Asia, including India. It can, however, be viewed from across America, western Europe and Africa. It may also be noted that the total lunar eclipse will not take place until May 26, 2021, which certainly a long wait.

What is Super Blood Wolf Moon?

This happens during a total lunar eclipse when the earth moves between sun and moon, leading to blocking of sun’s light directly falling on the Moon. During the event, little light does manage to pass from edges of the Earth’s atmosphere that lit up the Moon’s surface, making it look red.

The sun, earth and moon are lined up in perfect order. A lunar eclipse only takes place at the time of full Moon only. During Super Moon, the moon appears brighter as it is closer than usual to the Earth.
