Eclipses in the Year 2019

Your eyesight is precious. Protect it!

Partial Solar Eclipse : 05/06 January
The eclipse is completely visible from eastern Asia.
 
05 January 23:34 UT The partial eclipse begins.
06 January 01:28 UT New Moon.
01:41 UT Instant of greatest eclipse: magnitude = 0.715
03:49 UT The partial eclipse ends.
07 January 00:08 UT Moon at descending node.
Total Lunar Eclipse : 21 January
The eclipse is completely visible from North, Central and South America.
 
20 January 22:48 UT Moon at ascending node.
21 January 02:35 UT The penumbral eclipse begins.
03:33 UT The partial eclipse begins.
04:40 UT The total eclipse begins.
05:13 UT Instant of greatest eclipse: umbral magnitude = 1.20
05:16 UT Full Moon.
05:43 UT The total eclipse ends.
06:51 UT The partial eclipse ends.
07:49 UT The penumbral eclipse ends.
Total Solar Eclipse : 02 July
The path of totality crosses Chile and Argentina.

The image at the right shows a portion of the sky centred on the Sun at the instant of greatest eclipse. The Sun's disk is drawn to scale but the extent of the corona depends upon the level of solar activity at the time.

Four bright stars are visible in this scene. The two brightest stars of Gemini, Castor and Pollux, are to the upper left of the eclipsed Sun. Procyon in Canis Minor is on the extreme lower left and red Betelgeuse in Orion is located on the bottom right.

Two planets can be seen in the immediate vicinity of the Sun. Venus shines at magnitude −3.9 at an elongation of 11.7° to the right of the eclipsed Sun whilst Mars is a much fainter object (magnitude +1.8) at an elongation of 19.9° to the left. Mercury is very near to Mars but is a little too far away from the Sun to be captured in this image.
