Lunar eclipse expected Sunday January 20

Lunar Eclipse

A celestial event to watch for later this month.

A total lunar eclipse will be seen across North America on the night of Sunday January 20th.

A lunar eclipse is the perfect line-up of the sun, earth and moon.

In contrast to a solar eclipse --where the moon blocks the sun -- a lunar eclipse is simply the full moon sliding into our planet's shadow.

The moon will appears a coppery orange colour, due to sunlight refracting or passing through our atmosphere...

The total lunar eclipse will happen at 8:41pm Sunday January 20, but the entire event will take a couple of hours.

If you miss this one, the next one happens just over three years from now, on May 16, 2022.
