A total lunar eclipse will be visible from Europe, North and South America, and western Africa in the night between 20 and 21 January 2019.

During a lunar eclipse, the Moon passes behind Earth’s shadow, which blocks it from sunlight. At the moment of totality, the lunar disk is not completely dark but has a reddish hue, due to sunlight refracted through Earth’s atmosphere.
