Super Blood Wolf Moon - What is it?

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.

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".
