And a blood moon is what happens with a lunar eclipse, the moon takes on a reddish/orangish tint.

The next total lunar eclipse will take place in May 26, 2021.

It was also the year's first supermoon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer position.

The total lunar eclipse will be fully visible in Winnipeg on Sunday night. Natacha Pisarenko/AP A Super Blood Wolf Moon is seen during a total lunar eclipse on January 20, 2019 in Marina Del Rey, California.

The super blood wolf moon is a combination of three events at once.

The lunar event lasted about four hours, beginning at 9:36 p.m EST Sunday and ending about 1:50 a.m. Monday.

North and South America, Europe and western Africa could see a total lunar eclipse, but eastern Africa and Asia could only observe a partial eclipse. By 2:48 a.m. on January 21, the total lunar eclipse ended.

But what exactly is a Blood Moon, when can you next see one and when did the United Kingdom last experience one?

And unlike solar eclipses, the lunar eclipse was safe to view with the naked eye or binoculars.
