- A rare, lunar eclipse will take place this Sunday night.
- It is called the Super Blood Wolf Moon.
- The name is derived from three lunar events happening at once.
- A super moon is when the moon is closest to the Earth. Wolf Moon is Native American for the first full moon of the year and a blood moon occurs when the Earth and the moon all line up and the shadow of the Earth casts a reddish glow.
- The lunar event will last about five hours beginning at 9:36p EST on Sunday night.
- You do not need protective glasses to view the lunar eclipse.
