Lunar Eclipse Photo Op
Evergreen Camera Club members will be treated to a full lunar eclipse this January 20th. 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). 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. Sadly, this will be the last total lunar eclipse to grace Earth’s sky until May 26, 2021.
The heads-up and details provided by new member Owen Newman:
Moonrise 4:45 pm 1/20 Azimuth (compass bearing) 63.2 degrees
Sunset 5:05 pm
Eclipse peaks at 10:13 pm
