Stunning Photos of the Super Blood Wolf Moon

On Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019, skywatchers around the world took in views of a total lunar eclipse combined with a supermoon, where a full moon appears a little bit bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer proximity to earth. There won't be another total lunar eclipse until the year 2021.
