Celestial lovers dial on January 20 in your diary, or set a reminder, because the total moon lunar eclipse on Metro Vancouver will grace 8:41 p.m. that night.
Gary Boyle, a columnist with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, says that the lunar eclipse fully aligns the sun, the earth and the moon.
This is not happening on a monthly basis, as the moon slows in its orbit and often loses the shadow of the earth. A lunar eclipse is just the moon to slide the earth shadow, so there is no special filter to see the need – like a solar eclipse.
During the entire eclipse, the moon will light orange copper like the blocks of the sun's earth, and it will take the blood moon. As a short eclipse, the lunar eclipse lasts for a few hours.
Next next lunar eclipses will be May 16, 2022.
