The blood moon part happens when the bright moon creeps directly through the Earth's shadow, causing it to turn to gold, copper or even a dark red.

The entire eclipse will be visible from North and South America, as well as parts of western Europe (including the UK) and north Africa.

If skies are clear on Sunday night, the spectacular total lunar eclipse will be visible with the naked eye. There is something captivating about being able to see the silent motion of the Moon in real time, reminding us of our dynamic Solar System. The colour changes because small molecules that make up the Earth's atmosphere scatter blue light as sunlight passes through it, leaving behind mostly red light that bends, or refracts, into Earth's shadow.
"A blood moon is one of the few opportunities we have to see both the moon and the stars in the sky at the same time, since the moon is usually too bright", Freeman said.
"In other words, any full moon or new moon that comes to within 224,775 miles (or less) of our planet, as measured from the centres of the Moon and Earth". In this situation, the sun is behind the earth and the moon is situated in the earth's shadow. So any light passing through Earth's atmosphere during totality will stream through the area where all of that volcanic pollution is still "hanging out".
