Moreover, a lunar eclipse will occur on January 21, 2019.

According to Gary Boyle, a columnist with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, a lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, earth and moon line up perfectly. The reason this doesn't happen every month (the moon is, after all, orbiting continuously around the sun) is that the moon's orbit is generally at a slight angle relative to the Earth's orbit around the sun.

The total lunar eclipse includes a super Moon where a full moon appears 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than usual. The eclipse is called a Super Blood Wolf Moon and will give sky gazers alluring views over parts of the Earth. A partial solar Eclipse can last contrast, a good two and a half hours.

Lunar eclipses describe the moment the Moon passes behind the earth and into its shadow. (That's 4:55pm UTC, for our worldwide readers.) Totality will last for 4 minutes and 33 seconds‚ but will be mostly over the Pacific Ocean; it will reach land near the city of La Serena, Chile, at 2:39pm EST. By the way, begins and ends each total Eclipse of the sun, first as a partial.

South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia will be able to witness this event.

The eclipse will be partial, as the alignment between the Sun and the Moon won't be exact. 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.

Being in the path of totality of a total solar eclipse is a rare experience impossible to completely replicate.

The whole thing will be over by 10:51 p.m. This event blocks the Sun's light from directly falling on the Moon making the moon look red.

Mercury, the smallest planet passes between Earth and the sun about 13 times a century.

The partial solar eclipse as seen from Calgary, Alberta, on May 20, 2012, captured at maximum eclipse. From the penumbra only a partial Eclipse is seen.

In the United Kingdom you will have the best chance to get a glance of the astrological event at 5.15am on January 21.
