The total lunar eclipse includes a super Moon where a full moon appears 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than usual. Since the first full moon of January is called "wolf moon"; many are calling this event a "Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse".
Although the Eclipse is not visible in January 2019 in Germany, for astronomy Fans, but it is important.
A partial solar eclipse will help kick off the New Year today (Sunday) as the moon passes between Earth and the sun. This event blocks the Sun's light from directly falling on the Moon making the moon look red.
Stargazers in North and South America and large swaths of Western Europe and Africa will want to save the date, as the celestial event will bring the sun, earth and moon into flawless alignment for a total lunar eclipse.
While solar eclipses must be viewed with special equipment to protect the eyes, lunar eclipses won't hurt your eyesight.
Total lunar eclipse begins: 11:41 p.m. (January 20). Most importantly, we'll see a lunar eclipse in which the moon turns blood red on January 21, 2019, so mark that on your calendar.
During a partial solar eclipse, the Moon, the Sun and Earth don't align in a perfectly straight line, and the Moon casts only the outer part of its shadow, the penumbra, on Earth.
Moreover, a lunar eclipse will occur on January 21, 2019. Astronomy Magazine's senior editor Michael Bakich says the Moon is always safe to look at because, "just like objects here on Earth, we see it because it reflects sunlight". That can only happen to Mercury or Venus, the inner planets, as seen from Earth, and November 11, 2019, it's the turn of the closest planet to the Sun.
On July 2, the partial eclipse will begin at 12:55pm EST. Although eclipses are typically thought of as being when the Moon passes in front of the Sun, technically speaking they also describe when a planet appears to cross the disk of the Sun.
How long the Eclipse lasts in January?. It never gets dark and you have to use solar filter safety glasses throughout the event.
So enjoy 2019's pantheon of eclipses, but know that the only one eclipse-chaser would go to the ends of the Earth to see is a total solar eclipse from the path of totality - surely nature's greatest spectacle.
