Vulcan Park Birmingham eclipse viewing

It's a rarity - a total lunar eclipse that coincides with the moon being at its closest point to Earth.

Mark your calendar for Sunday, Jan. 20, if you hope to see one of the most epic celestial shows of 2019.

During a total lunar eclipse, the Sun, Earth and the Moon are perfectly lined up. Coggin Heeringa is the director of Crossroads at Big Creek and she says the best part happens when all the other stars become visible when the moon gets dark. The full moon will turn an eerie shade of orange. According to EarthSky.org, the moon's orbit will take it between 221,681 miles and 252,622 miles this year. Full eclipse will be reached around 11:40 p.m. and last for just over an hour.

This Is The Hyundai Veloster N TCR Race Car
As Hyundai noted, the vehicle shares around 85 percent of its core components with the championship-winning i30 N TCR . Bryan Herta Autosport, the designated Veloster N TCR retailer in the US , will race two cars in the upcoming season.

The super blood wolf moon eclipse will occur at 12:12 a.m. ET on January 21, but you'll be able to watch the moon turn from white to orange in the hours beforehand. The partial eclipse - as the moon is leaving Earth's shadow - ends at 9:50 p.m. The full eclipse starts at 7:41 p.m. and ends at 8:43 p.m.

The next total lunar eclipse will not occur until May 2021.
