The total lunar eclipse on the morning of 21 January is a perfect event to observe with budding astronomers, apart from the timing! The main visual eclipse takes place between 03:34 UT and 06:51 UT – with totality between between 04:41 UT and 05:43 UT – so you’ll need an early night on 20 January. It’s sometimes difficult to wake up in the early hours to observe, so set two alarms and have breakfast ready, because this naked-eye event has the potential to be something that young eyes will remember forever.
