China’s lunar probe changes orbit to land on dark side of moon

Stargazers are in for a real treat this January with an astounding Super Blood Moon eclipse. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the Algonquin tribes in the eastern US named the moons each month to help them keep track of the seasons and lunar months, and many colonial Americans adopted these names.

Formed from the debris left by Hailey's Comet when it flew by Earth in 1986, the Eta Aquarids meteor shower will be one of the best we'll witness this year.

At long last, a full moon in January has been known as a Wolf Moon as far back as pilgrim times, so's the place the "wolf" some portion of the name originates from. As per the EarthSky, from beginning to end, the umbral lunar eclipse will remain merely for over 3 and-a-half hours, with entirety accounting for approximately an hour this time. This will cause satellite of the Earth to show up a peculiar red glow in a outcome that has come to be recognized as the Blood Moon.

A total lunar eclipse will be visible on January 21. It didn't say when the landing would occur.

The Moon is tidally locked to Earth, rotating at the same rate that it orbits our planet, so the far side - or the "dark side" - is never visible from Earth.

What is a Blood Moon?

"Meteors will radiate from the constellation Gemini, but can appear anywhere in the sky".

NASA explains: "This happens for the exact same reason our sunrises and sunsets here on Earth are brilliant shades of pinks and oranges".

The Super Blood Wolf Moon will start late in the evening on Jan 20. The "Tremendous" on this particular lunar installment is derived from the period "supermoon", which refers back to the time every year when the moon reaches its perigee or the goal at which it's closest to the earth. These two variables make it look 14 percent bigger and 30 percent more brilliant than it typically does, as per Space.com.

Statistically, a blue moon total eclipse is much more rare. "That's what the term "Supermoon" refers to".

On July 2, there will be a total solar eclipse (when the moon passes directly in front of the sun), but it won't be visible in North America, only in parts of the southern Pacific Ocean and some parts of South America.

Whatever else 2019 may bring, there's a host of rare astronomical events on tap in the coming 12 months, starting in January. It will be night time in this part of the world, and hence this eclipse is also set to elude India.
