On January 20-21, be ready for a series of firsts. It’s the first full moon of 2019, and the first lunar eclipse of 2019 (and this is an eclipse-heavy year, with five eclipses, including two lunar eclipses in 2019; read more). Plus, it’s the year’s first supermoon, meaning the moon is nearly at its closest to Earth for this month, as the eclipse takes place.
And now … a single sad last thing. This will be the last total lunar eclipse to grace Earth’s sky until May 26, 2021.
