If skies are clear, viewers in North and South America, as well as those in western parts of Europe and Africa, will be able to watch one of the sky's most dazzling shows on late Sunday night January 20th and early Monday morning Jan. 21, 2019, when the Sun, Earth and Moon align creating a total lunar eclipse. 

The maximum eclipse will occur 12:12 am Eastern time / 9:12 Pacific time; the total duration of the eclipse is just over 5 hours and the duration of the full eclipse is just over 1 hour.
