This phenomenon is often described as a "blood moon".
A rare triple header of lunar loveliness will take place the night of January 20-21, when we'll see a total eclipse of the moon (by Earth), with the moon also a "super" moon since it'll be at it's closest point to the Earth, and the moon will be a wolf moon, because that's what the first full moon of a calendar year is called. What makes it so extraordinary is it will be a rare Super Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse. Since the Sun's light will be falling on the moon during the rotation, it will appear reddish.
And then there's the blood moon.
Another total lunar eclipse is happening nearly a year after 2018 Super Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, only that it will not be a "blue" one this time around.
The rare lunar event will be visible in the sky across the United States starting late on January 20 and last into the early morning of January 21.

According to timeanddate.com, the event starts at 9:32 p.m. EST on Sunday, Jan. 20 and will go on into the morning of Monday Jan. 21. The earth casts its shadow completely on the moon, causing the moon to appear red or rust colored. It will as well be the first and last to occur across the winter skies of Northern America within the next three years.
According to the latest reports, the eclipse will also be visible to much of Europe and Western Africa, but it will unfortunately not be visible to people in India, China, and Australia.
WOLF MOON: The reason is not as fancy as the name suggest but worth mentioning. In Native American times, hungry wolves would be seen near the towns and villages at a full moon.
The name was coined because wolves tend to howl a lot during their breeding season in January and February.
