Essentially, it's a total lunar eclipse with a couple of other elements thrown in.
The information was contained in a statement issued to NAN by Dr Felix Alle, the Head, Media and Public Communications of the agency in Abuja. That's why an eclipsed moon is sometimes known as a blood moon. Over the course of just an hour, an ever-bigger, dark shadowy bite will appear to be taken out of the moon until 11:40 p.m. when totality begins -- when Earth's shadow completely engulfs the lunar disk.
Events include a special presentation in the renovated Zeidler Dome about the geometry of the eclipse as well as a peek at the new S.P.A.C.E. Gallery featuring a real piece of the Moon. A cold front is expected to pass through the region Sunday, which will drop an arctic chill into the area, quickly plunging overnight temperatures into the 40s during the eclipse.
"The total duration of the occurrence over Nigeria will be three hours and 15 minutes".

Finally, this is called a Wolf moon is a part of tradition of referring to January's full moon.
"This total lunar eclipse on the morning of Monday January 21st will be entirely seen in Irish skies from start to finish so we are recommending everyone take a day off work or school and watch this fantastic spectacle of nature when the brilliant full moon turns to a dim "blood moon" for 62 minutes". At 12:43 a.m. EST Monday (Jan. 21), the moon will poke itself out of the umbra and into the penumbra; and at 1:50 a.m. EST (10:50 p.m. PST, Jan. 20), it will have totally left the umbra. And the reason for that is the moon has an orbit around the Earth that brings it closer to and away from the Earth at different times in its orbit.
