Friday the 13th has long been considered unlucky by the mainstream. Occasionally the Moon passes directly in front of the Sun but doesn't completely cover it. When that occurs, it's usually because the Moon is farther from Earth than its average distance. This geometric circumstance is known as an annular eclipse, so-called because you can see a ring, or annulus, of sunlight surrounding the lunar disk.

Annular eclipses of the Sun occur about as often as the total ones do, and an annular's path is likewise narrow. Outside of it observers see only a partial cover-up.
Below are brief descriptions of this eclipses in of the Sun and Moon. Times are in Universal Time UT except as noted. Adjust these to get those for your time zone e. This plot shows key events in the total lunar eclipse on January 31, It's been more than two years since we've experienced a total lunar eclipse — the last one was September 27—28, — and skygazers are ready for another!
Totality lasts a generous 77 minutes, from to UT. The timing of this one, with mid-eclipse at UT, favors locations around the Pacific Rim: not long after sunset for eastern Asia and Australia; around midnight for Hawaii; and and before dawn for western North America. This animation by Larry Koehn shows how the event plays out for the principal North American time zones, plus Hawaii.
But not all of the U. As the map below shows, totality occurs in the hours before dawn for those on the West Coast, but it happens after moonset and sunrise for those east of the Mississippi River. In fact, those as far east as Boston won't get to see more than a small umbral nibble on the lunar disk.

Why Do Eclipses Happen?
All three of this year's partial solar eclipses occur deep in the Southern Hemisphere. Note that solar-eclipse predictors compute the Sun's blockage during partial eclipses in two ways. Magnitude refers to the fraction of the solar disk's diameter that is covered by Moon, whereas obscuration corresponds to the fraction of the disk's area that's covered. The viewing prospects are even worse for this partial solar eclipse, because the Moon's shadow clips Earth between the the coasts of Australia and Antarctica.

France's Dumont d'Urville scientific station on the Antarctic coast should enjoy this event's "greatest eclipse," when a third of the Sun's diameter is covered at UT. The total lunar eclipse, on July 27, , is timed perfectly for those in the Eastern Hemisphere — but won't be seen from North America. Two weeks after the new Moon involved in a July 13th's partial solar eclipse, the full Moon takes a deep dive through Earth's umbra for the second time this year.
Mid-eclipse on July 27th comes at UT, which unfortunately is in the midst of daylight across North America. But it will be a grand show across Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. The partial phases run from to UT, nearly 4 full hours, which results from two factors. First, the Moon passes directly through the heart of Earth's umbral shadow, just 6 arcminutes from its center. Second, the Moon is very nearly its most distant from Earth, near the apogee of its orbit, resulting in a slightly diminished orbital velocity.

Two weeks later, with the Moon having moved halfway around its orbit and once again new, another partial solar eclipse takes place — the third and final one in This time the geometry shifts from extreme southern latitudes to extreme northern ones. Greatest eclipse, at UT, takes place off the northern coast of Siberia at a latitude of Much of Scandinavia, Russia, and eastern Asia enjoy a partial eclipse that day.
The mix of events gets more interesting next year, with three different flavors of solar eclipse — one each of partial, annular, and total — and partial and total lunar eclipses. The Moon's deep umbral dive on January 21, , will offer ringside seats for skywatchers in North and South America. Great article Kelly, BUT…. None of these events are actually visible from NZ. Hey… I know you really tried so hard.
I agree with G-W, very good article, as always. Unfortunately I will not be able to see any of these events from here in North Carolina except possibly the very begining of the Jan.
