The total eclipse ends Monday at 12:43 a.m., and we are in prime position to see the entire event, concluding when the partial ends Monday at 1:50 a.m. The colour changes because small molecules that make up the Earth's atmosphere scatter blue light as sunlight passes through it, leaving behind mostly red light that bends, or refracts, into Earth's shadow.

To add to the folkloric reputation of the moon, a January full moon is also sometimes known as a "wolf moon" or "great spirit moon". Wolf Moon is a nickname given to the winter Moon by the Native American tribes after the wolves who howl as they hunt during the winter.
