There were attractive pictures of the first in 2019 solar Eclipse

Super Blood Moon is scheduled to bright up the skies on January 20 and 21, 2019. The Earth will come between the Sun and the Moon in just the right way so that the Earth's shadow is cast entirely across its moon. The flawless positioning of the Moon on the ecliptic on July 2, 2019 causes a total solar eclipse, but two weeks later it's nearly as well positioned when it's on the other side of Earth. Since the first full moon of January is called "wolf moon"; many are calling this event a "Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse".

Royal Museums Greenwich explains the event saying, "During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon usually turns a deep, dark red because it is illuminated by light that has passed through the Earth's atmosphere and has been bent back towards the Moon by refraction".

The moon will continue deeper into the shadow, and the total eclipse begins at 8:41 p.m. It's only visible on the night-side of Earth, which includes South America, the eastern Pacific Ocean, western Atlantic Ocean, and extreme western Europe.

The big one - exactly like the total solar eclipse in the U.S. on August 21, 2017 - and the first one since.

Skywatchers in other parts of Africa, Europe and Asia will see a partial eclipse.

Partial umbral eclipse ends: 1:51 a.m. (January 21) The moon completely exits the shadow.

The next solar Eclipse will take place on 2 July.

"Repeating Radio Bursts" Detected From Distant Galaxy
"Until now, there was only one known repeating FRB .", astronomer Ingrid Stairs , also a member of the CHIME team, said. The findings were presented during a meeting held by the American Astronomical Society in Seattle, Wash., on Thursday.

The moon will be at the nearest point to Earth. From 12:55 to 5:50 p.m. ET.

November 11: Transit of Mercury: The planet Mercury will pass directly between the Earth and the Sun during our daylight.

It will be followed by a full solar eclipse on July 2, which India again would not be able to see. The event is, strictly speaking, a partial eclipse, but a very pretty one.

In the United Kingdom you will have the best chance to get a glance of the astrological event at 5.15am on January 21. The spectacle can look more dramatic at sunrise, when it can be photographed more easily, and with a foreground.

However, even some eclipse-chasers give such "minor" eclipses a miss. Who is in the Umbra, can be observed from earth, a total Eclipse of the heart.

This partial solar eclipse is the first of six in 2019.
