2019 assures to be a magnificent year for eclipse-chasers, and it’s set to begin in design on Sunday, January 6, 2019, when the Moon will pass in front of a few of the Sun to trigger a partial solar eclipse.
It’s the very first of 6 eclipses in 2019, and comes 2 weeks prior to the ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’– an overall lunar eclipse on January 20/21 that all of North and South America, and Western Europe, will see.
So who will see Sunday’s partial lunar eclipse? From Siberia, northeast China, Mongolia, the Korean Peninsula, and Japan, the Moon will appear to take a bite out of the Sun.

Seeing the partial solar eclipse from Russia
In Russia it will not simply be the Moon that will be biting. Eclipse-chasers are currently entering into position, consisting of one at a location referred to as the ‘Pole of Cold’– Earth’s coldest lived in location. “I will observe it from Oymyakon, Yakutia, Sakha Republic, in northeastern Siberia,” states Xavier Jubier from Paris, France, and a member of International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group on Solar Eclipses.
Oymyakon is really remote, a thousand kilometers from Yakutsk, however really near to the Point of Greatest Eclipse where one of the most of the Sun will be covered by the Moon. “The eclipse takes place simply above the horizon in temperature levels around -50 ° C/-60 ° F or lower,” states Jubier, whose site is a gold mine of in-depth info about eclipses, and includes a Google Map of the course of Sunday’s partial solar eclipse
