Look to see what other planets are involved in the eclipse as their energy will add significantly to the story of change, movement, letting go, and release. An eclipse is a shift in the vibrational alignment between the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon creating an analogous shift in the alignment of our own energies. We are not only on Earth but of Earth. What she experiences so do we, each in our own way, according to the constellation of energies in our own unique charts. The moon is in between the Earth and the Sun. From our perspective here on Earth it looks like the Moon is blotting out the Sun.
Powerful time of reprogramming your essential life force to align more correctly with your personal growth and evolution. Is your behavior out in the world synchronous with how you perceive yourself to be? The Earth blocks out the light of the Sun reflected onto the Moon so the Moon, though full, is darkened, sometimes appearing red.

Very eerie and so cool! Lunar eclipses ask us to go the emotional realms and see what changes need to made there to bring about the desired balance of energies. Use the powerful force of the eclipses to propel yourself into new territory.
Follow eclipses in your own chart and see for yourself their effect and impact on your life. Born at an eclipse? The planetary energies activated by the eclipse at the time of your birth will significantly influence you all the days of your life. Eclipses occur in pairs, 2 weeks apart. Occasionally there will be 3 eclipses in a row, 2 weeks separating each. All times are given in Local Time. This event is the 58th eclipse of Saros The entire series of 70 eclipses spans the years through Only 3 members of this series were total in the years , , and Saros also has 2 hybrid, 37 annular, and 28 partial eclipses.
Complete details for the series can be found at: Saros Click for detailed diagram Total Lunar Eclipse of January The apparent diameter of the Moon is larger than average since the eclipse occurs 0. This is the last of three consecutive total lunar eclipses in and , each one separated by six months previous total lunar eclipses occurred on Jan 31 and Jul In this particular case, the Moon passes deeply into the umbral shadow leading to a relatively long total eclipse lasting 1 hour 2 minutes.
The times of the major eclipse phases are listed as follows. At the instant of greatest eclipse  UT1 the Moon lies at the zenith for a point near eastern Cuba. The umbral eclipse magnitude  peaks at 1. As a result, the southern half of the Moon will appear much darker than the northern half because the Moon samples a large range of umbral depths during the total phase. The exact brightness distribution in the umbra is difficult to predict, so observers are encouraged to estimate the Danjon value at mid-totality see Danjon Scale of Lunar Eclipse Brightness.
It may also be necessary to assign different Danjon values to different portions of the Moon e. Much of the eclipse will be seen in central and eastern Europe, but observers there will miss the later stages of the eclipse because they occur after moonset. Likewise parts of the central Pacific experience moonrise after the eclipse begins. Table 2 lists predicted umbral immersion and emersion times for 25 well-defined lunar craters. The timing of craters is useful in determining the atmospheric enlargement of Earth's shadow see Crater Timings During Lunar Eclipses. The January 21 eclipse is the 27th eclipse of Saros This series began on Apr 01 and is composed of 72 lunar eclipses in the following sequence: 8 penumbral, 10 partial, 26 total, 10 partial, and 18 penumbral eclipses Espenak and Meeus, a.
In this context, the January 21 eclipse is the 9th total eclipse in the series.
The last total eclipse is on Jul 26 and the final eclipse of the series is on May Complete details for this Saros series can be found at: Saros Click for detailed diagram Total Solar Eclipse of July The eagerly awaited total solar eclipse of July 02 is the first one since the Great American Total Eclipse of Such a close Moon during a total eclipse typically produces a long duration of totality - especially if the path passes near the Equator.
In the case of the July 02 event, the maximum duration is just over 4. The total eclipse is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses the Pacific Ocean and southern South America. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes the Pacific Ocean and most of South America Figure 3. Oeno Island is a remote coral atoll and is part of the Pitcairn Islands.
Unfortunately, there is no other landfall along the entirety of the Pacific track of kilometers. The region enjoys especially dry and clear weather - so much so that a string of major international astronomical observatories have been built there, including Cerro Tololo, La Silla and Gemini South.
After crossing the Andes, the lunar shadow descends into Argentina for the last segment of its track.
The shadow covers the kilometer-stretch across Argentina in only 3 minutes. In Argentina, San Juan lies just inside the southern limit while Cordoba is 75 kilometers north of the track. Just before the path ends, it barely misses Buenos Aires, the northern edge only 30 kilometers south of the center of the capital.
Nevertheless, all roads leading from Buenos Aires to the central line will probably be clogged with traffic on eclipse day. At UT1 the lunar shadow lifts off Earth and returns to space. Central line coordinates and circumstances are presented in Table 3. Partial phases of the eclipse are visible across the southern Pacific Ocean and South America. Local circumstances for a number of cities in South America are found in Table 4.
The Sun's altitude and azimuth, the eclipse magnitude and obscuration are all given at the instant of maximum eclipse at each location. The Jul 02 Solar Eclipse Circumstances Calculator is an interactive web page that can quickly calculate the local circumstances for the eclipse from any geographic location not included in Table 4. This is the 58th eclipse of Saros Espenak and Meeus, All eclipses in the series occur at the Moon's ascending node and gamma decreases with each member in the family.
The series is a mature one that began with a modest partial eclipse on Oct After 20 partial eclipses in the series and more than 3 centuries, the first umbral eclipse occurred on May The event was a 2-minute total eclipse through New England, eastern Canada and Greenland.
During the next 2 centuries, the umbral duration continued to increase as each path shifted progressively southward. The greatest umbral duration of Saros occurred during the total eclipse of Aug Unfortunately, the 5 minute 40 second total eclipse was only visible from equatorial Africa, which was virtually inaccessible to astronomers of the day.
As the duration of each succeeding eclipse decreased, the paths reversed their southern migration and drifted northward during the 18th and 19th centuries. This effect occurred as a result of the Northern Hemisphere season shifting from winter to summer when the Northern Hemisphere tipped towards the Sun. The southbound trend of the Saros series resumed with the eclipse of May At this point, the duration of totality at greatest eclipse had again increased to over 5 minutes.
The most recent member occurred on Jun 21 and its path crossed southern Africa on the summer solstice. After , the next member occurs on Jul 13 and passes through Australia and New Zealand. On Jul 24, the series returns to the African continent producing a path through South Africa. The duration of totality drops as Saros continues to produce total eclipses during the 21st century. The last total eclipse of the series occurs on Aug 15 and lasts a maximum of 1 minute 38 seconds. The final 20 eclipses of the series are all partial events in the polar regions of the Southern Hemisphere.
The family terminates with the partial eclipse of Feb Click for detailed diagram Partial Lunar Eclipse of July It takes place 4. At the instant of greatest eclipse UT1 the Moon lies near the zenith from a location in South Africa. The event is well placed for observers in Europe, Africa, and South Asia. None of the eclipse will be visible from North America. South America will see later stages of the eclipse, which begins before the Moon rises.
