Canadian stargazers are in for a treat this Sunday with the first celestial showcase of the year - a lunar eclipse known as the Super Wolf Blood Moon.

While the upcoming eclipse is being called a "super blood wolf moon", Ursa said this is a total eclipse like any other.

To see the eclipse, head outside at about 9:36 p.m. EST (6:36 p.m. PST) on January 20, when the moon begins moving into Earth's penumbra. But despite this macabre moniker, this reddish color is actually quite romantic in origin: It's the culmination of light from all of the Earth's sunrises and sunsets bending through the Earth's atmosphere and hitting the moon, Hartigan said. In a solar eclipse, the moon is between the Earth and the sun, so the moon blocks the sun. The phenomenon occurs when the Moon enters the shadow of the Earth, becoming red and brown in colour, the Croatian Astronomical Association announced, reports Jutarnji List on January 20, 2019. Talking about the term "Wolf Moon", this term was coined by native Americans for a full moon that appears in the middle of winters.

Yes. The tidal effects and extra night lighting from the moon cause fish to become more active which is why full moons are are a favored time to go fishing.

A supermoon happens when the moon is at the point when it's closest to the earth in its orbit around it. During this state the moon can appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than when the moon is furthest from earth.

Send us your photos of the blood moon, which is due to be at its best in the early hours of Monday morning.

The next total lunar eclipse that's positioned over North America won't be until May of 2022.

It begins with the partial phase around 10:34 p.m. EST Sunday. The entire event lasts five hours and 11 minutes.

In South America, the Incas believed a Blood Moon was a sign it had been attacked by a cosmic jaguar, that would then crash down on Earth to devour them. While Earthlings can catch scores of supermoons and blood moons in their lifetime, a combination of the two taking place together in January only happens three times this century.

Where to observe: Dubai Astronomy group is organizing an event at Al Thuraya Astronomy Center.
