So what is a super blood wolf moon? The "super" references the size, which was bigger in the sky thanks to the moon's close orbit, while "blood" refers to the ruddy colour. Full moons in January are also refered to as wolf moons in folklore.
The moon was completed covered by the Earth's shadow — it's called totality when that happens — for an hour on Sunday evening.
