Next 21st January a Total Lunar eclipse will happen. It is visible from central Pacific, Americas, Europe and Africa.

ServiAstro broadcast the phenomenon in live with images taken by a team of the Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona from the Centre d'observaciķ de l'Univers d'Āger.

The broadcast couldn't be totally completed due to the fog.

Lunar eclipses are celestial phenomena visible from a wide geographical area. There are different types: most impressive are Total Eclipses, when the Moon gets completely covered by the shadow of the Earth taking a reddish hue; a little bit less spectacular are the Partial ones which take place when the Moon enters only partly in the shadow of the Earth, they are seen with one part of the disk darkened and the other part still illuminated; and the most subtle ones are the penumbral eclipses, when only a slight darkening of the disk can be appreciated.

The last Total Lunar Eclipse we could see was on 27th July 2018, the next will be on 26th May 2021.



The Total Lunar Eclipse of 21st January 2019 will be visible from central Pacific, Americas, Europe and Africa.
