"This total lunar eclipse on the morning of Monday January 21st will be entirely seen in Irish skies from start to finish so we are recommending everyone take a day off work or school and watch this wonderful spectacle of nature when the brilliant full moon turns to a dim "blood moon" for 62 minutes".
Why is it called a "super blood wolf moon"?
Totality - when the moon is completely bathed in Earth's shadow - lasted an hour.
The "super blood wolf moon" was visible in parts of the United Kingdom this morning.
Surrounded by stars, the eclipsed moon turns red over Mount Baker.
Everyone could see the supermoon but the entire eclipse was visible only in North and South America, and across the Atlantic to western and northern Europe.
Once every 19 years, there's a long gap between total lunar eclipses; this occurs because of the geometry of the positions of the Earth, sun and moon.
The moon was in flawless alignment with the sun and Earth, with the moon on the opposite side of Earth from the sun. The moniker "wolf moon" was given because it appeared in January, when hungry wolves would howl outside villages in days gone by. Instead tribes gave each full moon a nickname to keep track of the seasons and lunar months.
NASA estimates there will be 85 total lunar eclipses this century. And David Wahl, the Director of Awesome at Seattle's Archie McPhee novelty emporium, suggested that from now on, each night's moon should be given a jazzy name.
Michelle Vincent from the Astrology Society of South Africa interpreted what the lunar eclipse energy means for believers in astrology.
Because, of course, lunar eclipses aren't the only celestial shows in the next few years.
