Additionally, a lunar eclipse takes place only when there's a full Moon.

So what's the deal?: You'll need to be awake late into the night to see this sort of moon. Of course, like all celestial happenings, your ability to view these events can depend on your location on Earth as well as the local weather.

Remember the total solar eclipse that swept across the US on August 21, 2017?

A solar eclipse occurs when the sun is obscured by the moon. This unique spectacle will also be considered a Wolf Moon (which is usually used to describe the first full moon of January). But if that alignment is off, it can result in a partial solar eclipse, and only part of the sun will appear to be blocked by the moon. Well, now South Asia and South America will enjoy a day of no sun.

The Super Blood Wolf Moon - the second eclipse of January and 2019 - is pretty unusual.

Tragedy as student dies after falling from Cliffs of Moher
The incident remains under investigation while Gardaí were last night trying to make contact with the victim's family in India. A Garda spokesman said: "There is nothing to suggest at this stage that this was anything other than a tragic accident".

The fact that it will be a super moon is because the moon's perigree, or closest approach, technically occurs at 2:59 p.m. Monday, when it's only 222,042 miles away.

Where will the Super Blood Wolf Moon be visible this month?

"A total lunar eclipse can happen only when the sun, Earth and moon are perfectly lined up - anything less than perfection creates a partial lunar eclipse or no eclipse at all", Space.com explains.

July's total solar eclipse will be relatively long, lasting nearly two minutes in some places.

July 2, 2019 will see a total solar eclipse lasting just over two minutes, nearly exactly the same as that seen across the U.S. on August 21, 2017.

We will, however, have a total lunar eclipse visible from St Maarten later this month which you may have seen a few memes about; it's hard to miss if you're on the internet lately, it's being billed as a super moon wolf's blood solar eclipse. On this night a total lunar eclipse is expected at about 11:41 p.m. until 12:43 a.m.

The eclipse is one of two lunar eclipses and three solar eclipses in 2019.

This will be the last one of its kind until 2021.

Skywatchers in western Europe and eastern Africa, plus parts of Asia will only see a partial eclipse of the moon. It will appear as a black dot across the the face of the sun, and stargazers will be able to see it with the help of a telescope and solar filters.

When is the next total solar eclipse?

During an annular solar eclipse, the moon is further away from the Earth. This makes it appear larger and 14 percent brighter than usual.
