January Supermoon and Lunar Eclipse

Supermoon & Lunar Eclipse Information

On the night of Sunday, January 20th, the moon will be considered a Supermoon and also our first and last Lunar Eclipse for 2019 will occur.

You don’t need to be in a dark place to see this event. Just clear/clearing skies and your eyes will do. Our forecast does call for some clearing, mainly mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies as of right now. Unfortunately, the temperatures are going to be brutally cold, making this not as enjoyable as last years.

The entire event will last for 5 hours and 11 minutes. Totality will last for 1 hour and 1 minute! So hopefully we can get some clear skies for those who want to see this event unfold. We won’t get to see another Total Lunar Eclipse until May 26th, 2021.
