Native Americans and colonial Europeans called January's full moon the wolf moon because wolves in the region would start howling due to hunger in winter, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.
Arkos said anyone with a clear view to the East should have no problem watching the Super Blood Wolf Moon eclipse.
This will be the first of three supermoons this year.
Where: The eclipse, either full or partial, will be visible from Greenland, Iceland, western Europe, and western Africa, according to Nat Geo, and the full eclipse will be visible in North and South America.
The moon will renter the penumbra and the process for ending the partial lunar eclipse will begin. The entire celestial event will wrap up at 1:51AM ET, though there won't be much to see by that point. The second one takes place February 19 and the third on March 21.
According to AccuWeather Meteorologist Mike Doll, clouds are expected "over much of the western USA, but there could be enough breaks in the clouds for people to see the eclipse".
"Our atmosphere scatters blue light making the sky blue so only the red light passes through and lights up the moon, making it appear a rusty red colour".More news: AFC Bournemouth vs. West Ham United - Football Match Report

The total lunar eclipse will be fully visible on Maui on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019, beginning at 6:41 p.m.
The moon will appear dark until the partial eclipse begins at 7.3pm PST.
Dr Brunsden, who is director of the university's Astrocampus, said: "In the early hours of Monday morning the full moon will be quietly changing". However, if you want to escape the bright lights, the view may be better. That's what makes this lunar eclipse so exciting.
The next total lunar eclipse that's positioned over North America won't be until May of 2022.
Unlike solar eclipses, lunar ones are safe to watch with the naked eye.
"In other words, any full moon or new moon that comes to within 224,775 miles (or less) of our planet, as measured from the centres of the Moon and Earth. You get to see the moon close up".
The moon is believed to be appearing its most red in the United Kingdom at 5.12am.
"Interestingly, our election could be influenced by these eclipses as the effects can last up to six months afterwards", she says.
"It's the luck of the draw that the various little bits and pieces come together and align just right that the moon ends up passing through Earth's shadow", Arkos said.
