For the first time in three years The United States will experience a total lunar eclipse. According to NASA, it will be one of the "most dazzling shows in the sky" as the moon is closest to Earth, making the moon appear slightly larger and much brighter, an event often referred to as "Supermoon."
But that's not the only thing that highlights this solar eclipse. Total lunar eclipses are often referred to as "blood moons". As the sun, earth, and moon align, the sunlight passing through the Earth's atmosphere seems to color the moon red. And because lunar eclipses can only occur during a full moon – and the first full moon in January is known as the "Wolf Moon" – many call this spectacular event a "Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse".

According to NASA, we can expect new moon two days before the meteor shower. The new moon will mean a darker sky that allows the human eye to appreciate the dazzling show of Eta Aquarids.
Although the Eta Aquarids will be active from May 19 to 26, their peak night starts at 3 am ET until dawn on May 6, and is expected to produce 20 to 40 meteors or more per hour.

Transit starts this year at 7:34 ET and lasts about 5 1/2 hours. It appears as a black dot over the sun's face, and stargazers will be able to see it with the help of a telescope and sun filters.
