The World at Night (TWAN)
Wish you clear skies this Sunday night to Monday morning. A Lunar Eclipse happens on January 20-21, with about an hour of totality visible on Sunday evening (west coast) and near midnight (east coast) from both South & North America, the entire Atlantic, and in the morning sky of Monday 21st near moonset in Europe (better in western & northern most), a good part of Africa, Russia, and Middle East (in an open western horizon before sunrise). The Hawaiian Islands will also see the eclipsed moon rising at dusk on Sunday.
These two telephoto images are of 2011 and 2016 eclipses. The first time I saw this beauty as a teenager in the 1992 lunar eclipse, it introduced me to astrophotography, the career I followed through the years with love for stars and protection of natural night skies. Explore more @babaktafreshi.
