It will be mainly visible from South America, Africa, Central Asia and India.
A total lunar eclipse will occur in the early morning hours of January 31, beginning at 3:51 a.m.
To be considered a supermoon, a full moon has to come within about 361,000 kilometers (km) or 224,000 miles closer to Earth, making it appear bigger than its usual size.
