TL;DR A total lunar eclipse will be visible across Canada on January 20-21, 2019. The full eclipse will begin on January 20 at 11:41PM EST.

What if this time the celebration was out of this world (literally), an occurance we don't often get to enjoy? Well, get your cameras ready Canada, a total lunar eclipse is going to be visible come 2019.

Visible across North and South America as well as parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia, this lunar eclipse is going to be a massive celestial event. It will likely attract thousands (if not millions) of spectactors when it hits the skies.

The total lunar eclipse will last from January 20-21, 2019 making it the perfect beginning to the new year.

All you need to do to watch the eclipse is find some clear skies, sit back and relax. The full eclipse begins on January 20 at 11:41PM EST, so be prepared to venture outdoors even in the frostiest of conditions.

To sweeten the deal even more, a solar eclipse always occurs two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse. 2019 will see a partial solar eclipse on January 5-6.
