The "Wolf" moon is the name given to January's full moon. That name can be broken down into several parts, the "blood moon", the "super moon", and the "wolf moon". It is kind of egg-shaped. Currently, the moon is very close to its perigee, or the closest point in the moon's orbit to Earth.
"We're going into this unusual lull in total lunar eclipses over the next couple of years", explained Tom Kerss, an astronomer from the Royal Observatory Greenwich.
The term "blood moon" comes from the eclipse that's expected to happen just hours before the full moon. As Chicagoans, we don't get as many chances to enjoy the cosmic wonders in the night sky because of light pollution. Of course, if it passes behind the Earth's shadow, it is no longer illuminated by the sun. In collaboration with global partners, ESA is preparing to go forward to the Moon on several missions to be developed over the next few years. But some light makes its way around the Earth and through the Earth's atmosphere to reach the moon and the result is a red coloring on the moon. Instead, sunlight that reflects off the moon's surface and travels to Earth. The moon will give a reddish glow.
A lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes through Earth's shadow as our planet goes around the Sun. That "bite" gets bigger and bigger as the moon moves deeper into the shadow.
