Skywatchers are gearing up for a lunar eclipse, which some are referring to as a "super blood wolf moon".
During the spectacular event, the Earth's natural satellite turns a striking shade of red.
The entire eclipse will be visible from North and South America, as well as parts of western Europe (including the UK) and north Africa.
What is a total lunar eclipse?
This kind of eclipse occurs when the Earth passes precisely between the Sun and the Moon.
In this situation, the Sun is behind the Earth, and the Moon moves into the Earth's shadow.
