Get ready to set your eyes to the sky later this month as a rare super blood moon total eclipse will appear for many in North and South America plus parts of western Europe and Africa.

The lunar event will happen overnight on January 20 into the 21st, with its peak coming around 12:16 a.m. ET.
NASA says another total eclipse, which only occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon are perfectly lined up, won’t happen again until May 2021.

The “super” designation means the moon will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than normal, while “blood” signifies the reddish color given off.
