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

But what does the name mean? This happens on a regular basis.

FULL moons and lunar eclipses have always been associated with various legends, myths and dark apocalyptic theories.

While the supermoon and blood moon titles come from the brightness and reddish hue respectively, a full moon in January is sometimes called a "wolf" moon.

The red moon is possible because while the moon is in total shadow, some light from the sun passes through Earth's atmosphere and is bent toward the moon.

And January's full moon is traditionally known as the Wolf Moon.

The total lunar eclipse, which happens less than once per year on average, coincided at the same time as a supermoon, which occurs when the moon is full and closest to Earth in orbit.

Earth cast two shadows on the moon during the eclipse.

Besides the Americas, the entire lunar extravaganza could be observed, weather permitting, all the way across the Atlantic to parts of Europe. By 2:48 a.m. on January 21, the total lunar eclipse ended.
