The mesmerising phenomenon has been given its name as it is unusually close to the Earth – ‘super’ – will be blood red – ‘blood’– and will be a full moon – hence, ‘wolf’.

The moon was reportedly at its most red in the UK at 5.10am. According to scientists, this will be our last chance to see a total eclipse of the moon until 2029.
