The trifecta known as the Super Blood Wolf Moon is relatively rare occurrence, which we won’t see again until 2036.
A Blood Moon is simply a term used for a total lunar eclipse, which we know happens every two to three years.
Meanwhile, Wolf Moon is simply the name given to a full moon which occurs in the month of January.
The January full moon will also be a Supermoon, which is the point in the moon’s orbit when it comes closest to Earth.
This makes the Moon appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal, according to Space.com.
It was the name given to January’s full moon by Native Americans, due to the howling of hungry wolves, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
