On January 20 (or 21, depending on time zones), a super blood wolf moon will occur in the sky. This phenomenon happens very rarely; it is the combination of a blood moon (turned red because it's fully eclipsed), a super moon (a full moon at its closest possible position to Earth), and a wolf moon (the first full moon of each year), according to Woman's Day.

Specifically, the moon will appear in these three combined states at 11:41 PM Eastern Time on the 20th. According to National Geographic, Americans (US, Canada, Mexico, etc) will be able to see the moon, as well as viewers in Greenland, Iceland, and western parts of Europe and Africa. Unfortunately, it won't be visible from most of Asia (Woman's Day).
