The celestial event will come almost a year after the 2018 Super Blue Moon total lunar eclipse, this one featuring a red tinge caused by the moon passing through the Earth's shadow.

The super blood wolf moon eclipse will occur at 12:12 a.m. ET on January 21, but you'll be able to watch the moon turn from white to orange in the hours beforehand.
