Monday 21st January from about 4 to 6 am

See a total eclipse of the Moon early  morning Monday 21st January from about 4 to 6 am. The Moon will turn red (“Blood Moon”), but no-one knows in advance just what shade of red, as it depends on the amount of dust, dirt and aerosols in our upper atmosphere, through which sunlight passes to reach the Moon.  Eclipse will begin 2:34 am, with totality lasting from 4:40 to 5:11. Here’s hoping for a clear night!
