  • Partial solar eclipse observed across Japan

He said people who want to view the "blood moon" eclipse January 20 should dress in warm clothes and be prepared for weather changes.

Details on what is a partial solar eclipse, India timings, where will it be visible, and how to watch.

A partial solar eclipse, in which part of the sun's disk is obscured by the moon passing between the star and Earth, was observed across Japan on Sunday morning.

The skies will witness a total lunar eclipse also known as the "Super Blood Wolf Moon" on January 20-21, depending on where you view from in North and South America, or western Europe, Pattanik further said.

Because the sun is completely blocked out, unlike in a partial solar eclipse, it's possible to look directly at the moon without any eye protection. "Dust in the atmosphere blocks out the higher frequency blue light waves, but the longer wavelength of red light comes through".

The solar eclipse will begin at 5:04 am on January 6 and will last till 9:18 am.

For the first time in three years, the United States will be able to experience a total lunar eclipse. 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.

Super Blood Moon is scheduled to bright up the skies on January 20 and 21, 2019.

"Earth's umbral shadow will fall on to the moon, and you will see quite a bit of red on one side of the moon", says Tom Kerrs, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, London and author of Moongazing: Beginners Guide to the Moon.

"Do not forget the Mercury Transit in November as it's the last one until 2032", warns Xavier Jubier from Paris, France, an eclipse-chaser and member of International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group on Solar Eclipses.

"If you were on the moon, you would see an orange ring around the Earth", he notes. You are looking at the moon, not at the sun. It's an event that happens only 13 times per century. "Or else UAE or Oman if I play it safe and conventional, or want to combine it with some sightseeing".
