Greetings to all who look upon the stars! To start off this year we have a truly special event! On January 20th-21st, a total lunar eclipse will turn the night skies red. A lunar eclipse also goes by the name of a Blood Moon because of the blood red tint we see during the eclipse.
The eclipse will begin at 11:40pm on January 20th, and it will end at 12:43am the morning of January 21st. For those night owls out there, this is a perfect opportunity to see the blood-red eclipse, which only happens when there are 4 lunar eclipses in the span of 2 years. But for all you Sleeping Beauties out there, it is still encouraged to stay up and watch the eclipse.
This diagram shows what the full eclipse over North and South America will look like between 11:40pm and 12:43am.
