The first full moon of 2019 is bound to be a spectacular sight. On the night time of January 20-21, the full moon will coincide with a complete lunar eclipse, which can trigger Earth’s satellite to take on an eerie red glow in an impact that’s come to be generally known as the Blood Moon. On the identical time, the moon will sit on the closest level to Earth in its orbit, when it’s going to seem huge within the night time sky.
It’ll make for a hanging mixture of each a super-moon and the Blood Moon, and marks the final whole lunar eclipse we’ll see till the next two years. From the start till the end, the umbral lunar eclipse will be for over three-and-a-half hours, with totality accounting for roughly an hour of this time, as said by EarthSky.
That is when the moon sits within the shadow of our planet, taking over a reddish hue on account of mild scattering via Earth’s environment. The following complete lunar eclipse come round till May 26, 2021.
The evening-time eclipse, or Blood Moon, will probably be seen in lots of components of the world, together with all of North America, and parts of Europe and Africa, following time and date. Different areas, together with the Middle East and the rest of Africa, will be capable of catching a glimpse of a partial eclipse at moonset.
