January 22nd will see an especially rare lunar occurrence take place that sounds like a deep-cut album track off of an early Iron Maiden album, maybe 'Piece Of Mind' or 'Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son'.

A super blood moon is a combination of two lunar occurrences - a super moon and a lunar eclipse, whilst the wolf part comes from traditional names for each full moon.

A super moon is when the moon passes at its closest point to Earth while on a full moon, and happens roughly three times a year.

A blood moon, meanwhile, is when the moon and the sun are on exact opposite sides of Earth. Although the moon is in Earth's shadow, some sunlight reaches the moon and gives it a reddish colour.

The 'wolf' part comes from the individual names given to a full moon. January's full moon is called the Wolf Moon, and seeing as how this super blood moon occurs during the month of January, you get the utterly metal-sounding Super Blood Wolf Moon.

The best time to see the Super Blood Wolf Moon here in Ireland is usually early morning around 5 or 6 and far out in the countryside where there's very little light pollution.
