This will be the first of three full-moon supermoons this year.

This eclipse has been dubbed the Super Blood Wolf Moon eclipse.

Most of the time, when Earth is between the sun and the moon, the moon is far enough off-center for the sun's light to still hit the moon's full face.

We'd love to see your pictures of the event. For more than an hour the night of January 20/21, the colors from all Earth's sunrises and sunsets bathe the Full moon in an ethereal orange glow.

A "wolf moon" is the name given for a full moon that happens in January, and derives from early Native American tribes noting when wolves would allegedly howl at the moon, according to the Farmer's Almanac. It will slowly be eaten away by shadow, turn a rusty blood red, then calmly grow back to its former self. "It's just a wonderful thing for the whole family to see because it's fairly rare to have all these things kind of come together at the same time ... the good thing about this is that you don't need any special equipment".

The last lunar eclipse was in July 2018, and the next one will not be until May 2021.

Weather permitting, the lunar eclipse will be visible all over North America and South America, said Karun Thanjavur, a senior astronomy lab instructor at the University of Victoria.

Send us your photos of the blood moon, which is due to be at its best in the early hours of Monday morning.

The total eclipse of the moon will last 62 minutes, starting at 8:41 p.m.

Experts predict that around 22:34 on January 20, the Earth's shadow will begin to tickle the corner of the moon, or what's called the "partial phase".

The Moon will be partially eclipsed between 03.35 and 6.51am, with the total eclipse from 4.42am until 5.44am.

Observing this weekend's lunar eclipse is similar to observing "one that was happening long ago in historical times", Hartigan said.

The next total lunar eclipse that's positioned over North America won't be until May of 2022. Higher frequencies at the blue end of the spectrum get absorbed completely in the atmosphere, but red light can pass through and reach the moon.

Will you be up to see the lunar eclipse?

The next similar event will take place in December 2029, according to the Armagh Planetarium and Observatory.

Here are some common beliefs regarding what to eat: Raw fruits and vegetables: The powerful rays radiated during a lunar eclipse can harm cooked food.
