Skywatchers on the island's entire continent will make a lunar eclipse on Sunday, from January 20-21, when the Earth's shadows gather along the lunar surface to give them a reddish lightning and call them "the blood moon."
This will be the first lunar eclipse of 2019 and the last complete lunar eclipse until 2021. It's the first moon in the year, when the "wolf moon" folkloric tradition occurs, wolves occur as in the autumn countries. and when the moon is a bit higher and brighter when Earth arrives in its elliptical orbit.
Since this is called supermoon in darkness, some media overcome the "moon of blood wolf" that eclipse.
But if the eclipses are outsized, your expectations probably would not have been.
"There is nothing" about this eclipse, "and I have never noticed a supermoon with my hair, with a normal moon," said Tyler Nordgren, Ithaca, an astronomer from New York, told NBC News MACH.
Eclipse will be visible in North and South America, as well as in parts of Western Europe and Africa. Skywatchers will see in other parts of Africa, a partial eclipse of Europe and Asia.
Things begin on January 20 at 10:30. Eastern time when the shadow of the Earth begins to cross the lunar surface. Egidity – When the sun, the moon and the Earth are perfectly aligned and the Earth's shadows cover the entire moon's disk – 12:12 a.m. It's Eastern Time, January 21st.
"Those who are clear skies will have a spectacular view," said Nordgren, who apparently escapes from outside.
Do not worry about special eye protection. While solar eclipses are to be seen in special glasses or lenses, lunar eclipses can be seen safely with single eyes.
Eclipse is a lunar eclipse and three solar eclipse in 2019. There will be a partial lunar eclipse on July 16, but the next eclipse next will not be until May 26, 2021.
