The observatory is open seven nights a week, and Mr Bennedick said there would be plenty of telescopes available for visitors to see the super moon and eclipse up close.

Wednesday night will also be a supermoon, when the full moon will be closest to the earth on its orbital journey - a mere 360,198km away. And unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse is perfectly safe to watch in the night with the naked eye.

But this is more than a super moon. When the moon is all the way in shadow, it doesn't go completely dark; instead, it looks red because of a process called Rayleigh scattering.

By about 6.15am CST the earth's reddish shadow will be clearly noticeable on the moon.

A#Total Lunar Eclipse is predicted to occur in the early hours of January 31.

About the same time next year, Monday, Jan. 21, another total lunar eclipse will traverse the Tucson sky that can been seen from start to finish. Because of the timing of the full moons, February will not have one and March will have two. "So we got a blue moon, we've got a total lunar eclipse which some people refer to as a blood moon, and then we also have it being a supermoon as well".

NASA has mapped the times of the total lunar eclipse from start to finish.
