  • Solar Eclipse, Jan 20-21. ✨🌑✨

    Totality, or total coverage of the moon, will begin at 11:41 p.m. ET on January 20 (4:41 UT on January 21) and will last for 62 minutes. The entire 3.5-hour event—including partial eclipses before and after totality—will be visible from the Americas, Greenland, Iceland, western Europe, and western Africa. Sky-watchers in eastern Europe and eastern Africa will witness only the partial eclipse, while people in most of Asia will not see any part of the sky show.
    A total lunar eclipse and a supermoon

    During a supermoon, the moon is a bit closer to Earth than usual. In a lunar eclipse, Earth’s shadow falls on the moon, giving it a reddish hue. Sometimes, by astronomical coincidence, the two events occur on the same night, producing a “Super Blood Moon.”
