The name Super Blood Wolf Moon finds its origins in the Old Farmers’ Almanac, a book on astronomical data, weather predictions, wherein the January full moon is referred to as full wolf moon. Also the moon will appear to glow like a red ball as a result of sunlight being scattered and refracted around Earth.

A total lunar eclipse always takes place when there is a full Moon. During this phenomenon, the Sun, Earth and the Moon are perfectly lined up with the Earth blocking the Sun’s light from falling directly on the Moon. However, the little light that manages to pass from the edges of the Earth’s atmosphere lit up the Moon’s surface and makes it look red.
