    Default Best Night Sky Events of January 2019



    Here is the latest report from Chris Vaughan of SkySafari Software, at Space.com. It provides information on several interesting observing opportunities throughout the month of January with 24 pages of interesting pictures, maps, and information for this month, including the Full Wolf Supermoon and Total Lunar Eclipse on the 21st, as well as other viewing opportunities.
    https://www.space.com/33974-best-night-sky-events.html
    I hope this helps in your observing plans and that it is useful to you. Thanks for looking, and the best of wishes for many clear night skies.

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind.

    I noticed that the article has mixed up the day/date of the upcoming lunar eclipse.

    The partial eclipse begins on Monday Jan 21 at 03:34 UTC. Totality begins at 04:41 UTC. Greatest totality at 05:16 UTC.

    For EST, that would be Sunday Jan 20 at 22:34 EST. Totality begins at 11:41 EST. Greatest totality at Monday Jan 21 at 00:16 EST.

    Total Lunar Eclipse of 2019 Jan 21
