First partial solar eclipse of 2019 witnessed today

First partial solar eclipse of 2019 witnessed today

However, the next total lunar eclipse like the one occurring this January won't come until May 26, 2021. According to National Geographic, on January 21, 2019, the total lunar eclipse will begin at 10:11 am IST on January 21 and will last for an hour and two minutes.

This doesn't occur every month, as the moon has a slight incline in its orbit and often misses earth's shadow. An eclipse is a result of the ideal lineup of the sun, earth and moon.

However, before "the big one" comes North America's celestial highlight of 2019 - a so-called "Super Blood Wolf Moon".

What is a partial solar eclipse?

"During totality (the time when the entire moon is covered by Earth's shadow) the lunar surface turns a copper orange due to sunlight refracting or passing through our atmosphere much like those hot summer sunsets on Earth". It will also be visible from North Pacific Ocean, as well as southwest Alaska. The partial solar eclipse requires the same precautions as a total solar eclipse.

Although the Eclipse is not visible in January 2019 in Germany, for astronomy Fans, but it is important.

Being in the path of totality of a total solar eclipse is a rare experience impossible to completely replicate. The next total lunar eclipse seen from Canadian soil will take place on May 16, 2022 where the east and central part of the country are favoured to see the entire eclipse. From 12:55 to 5:50 p.m. ET.

A January 7 article Forbes magazine noted that, depending on where you are, the moon might also look copper colored or "orange-reddish".

"In rating the sheer beauty and grandeur of solar eclipses, a partial is a three, an annular is a seven, and a total is a 1,000,000!" "Although annular eclipses can be quite interesting, they are nothing like a total eclipse", says Espenak, who thinks that annular eclipses are only for die-hard eclipse-chasers.

Partial umbral eclipse begins: 8:34 p.m. (January 20) The moon begins to enter the shadow.
