According to Space.com, it was the first total lunar eclipse visible from the majority of the U.S.in 19 years, and the first such celestial event visible from North America in three years.
Lunar eclipses can occur only during a full moon, and this one was extra special because it was also a supermoon. We can see the red light during an eclipse as it falls onto the Moon in Earth's shadow.
Lunar eclipses describe the moment the Moon passes behind the earth and into its shadow and can only happen when there is a Full Moon.
While the supermoon and blood moon titles come from the brightness and reddish hue respectively, a full moon in January is sometimes called a "wolf" moon. Frank Gunn/CP A lunar eclipse progresses behind the "Monumento a la Carta Magna y Las Cuatro Regiones Argentinas" in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Monday, Jan. 21, 2019.

The Super Wolf Blood Moon rose into the sky Sunday evening, January 20th. The wolf part is for January's full moon. This process will end at 11:40 p.m., when the Earth's shadow covers the whole of the moon's surface; this is the beginning of "totality.' This will last until around 12:40 a.m., when the motion of the Earth's shadow will carry it past the moon, and the moon will gradually again be lit by the sun".
