Blood moon to grace Vancouver skies January 20

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

This eclipse is first of six to occur this year. 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.

Unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse is safe to look at with the naked eye. During an eclipse, the Moon is in Earth's shadow, so there's even less light coming from it.

The solar eclipse will begin at 5:04 am on January 6 and will last till 9:18 am. Most parts of Asia including India, some parts of western Europe and Africa will not be able to witness this celestial event.

Trade war: China says USA talks 'laid ground' to resolve dispute
The discussions "went just fine", he said without elaborating, the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported. The U.S. and China have slapped a tariffs on a combined $360 billion in each other's imports since July.

The eclipse will be partial, as the alignment between the Sun and the Moon won't be exact. It turns dark during a total solar eclipse and temperatures can call given the Sun is completely blocked.

The next total lunar eclipse is set to occur May, 26, 2021 and will be visible for parts of North and South America and East Asia. "I don't like the term "eclipse-chaser" since I get in place first; I am an "eclipse preceder" or "umbraphile", says Pasachoff, whose team will image the Sun's corona from La Silla Observatory to the north of the central line of the eclipse.

A January 7 article Forbes magazine noted that, depending on where you are, the moon might also look copper colored or "orange-reddish".

See, simple. Now you're basically Galileo.

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

On July 2, the partial eclipse will begin at 12:55pm EST.

'Gully Boy' trailer: Ranveer and Alia steal the show
The story is based on the life of Divine and Naezy (Naved Shaikh), who are underground rappers from Mumbai. Actor Ranveer Singh was his chaotic, goofy self at the trailer launch of his upcoming movie, Gully Boy .

So enjoy 2019's pantheon of eclipses, but know that the only one eclipse-chaser would go to the ends of the Earth to see is a total solar eclipse from the path of totality - surely nature's greatest spectacle. Who is in the Umbra, can be observed from earth, a total Eclipse of the heart.
