Blood Moon on show for much of the world

Blood Moon on show for much of the world”

This doesn't occur every month, as the moon has a slight incline in its orbit and often misses earth's shadow.

The annular eclipse occurs when the circumference of the sun shines brightly from behind the moon.

These events bring out internet excitement: the British Daily Mail tabloid consulted an astrologer about one full moon past year and is already breathlessly calling this event a "Super Blood Wolf Moon".

Royal Museums Greenwich explains the event saying, "During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon usually turns a deep, dark red because it is illuminated by light that has passed through the Earth's atmosphere and has been bent back towards the Moon by refraction".

Lunar eclipses describe the moment the Moon passes behind the earth and into its shadow. It's only visible on the night-side of Earth, which includes South America, the eastern Pacific Ocean, western Atlantic Ocean, and extreme western Europe. By the way, begins and ends each total Eclipse of the sun, first as a partial.

Skywatchers in other parts of Africa, Europe and Asia will see a partial eclipse. The area of the sun's disk obscured by the moon was the largest around 10 a.m.

Being in the path of totality of a total solar eclipse is a rare experience impossible to completely replicate.

Total solar eclipse will hit the southern parts of Chile and Argentina, and parts of the South Pacific. Totality is at 9:12 p.m. PST on January 20 and 00:12 a.m. EST on January 21 from North America.

If you were on the moon, you would see an orange ring around the earth. "I don't like the term "eclipse-chaser" since I get in place first; I am an "eclipse preceder" or "umbraphile", says Pasachoff, whose team will image the Sun's corona from La Silla Observatory to the north of the central line of the eclipse. Look southeast. The crescent moon will pass by them as they drift farther apart on January 30.

The partial solar eclipse as seen from Calgary, Alberta, on May 20, 2012, captured at maximum eclipse. Who is in the Umbra, can be observed from earth, a total Eclipse of the heart. From the penumbra only a partial Eclipse is seen.

January is the next partial Eclipse of the sun. January 2019 is the next partial Eclipse of the sun.

How long the Eclipse lasts in January?
