January 20, 2019, Blood Red Lunar Eclipse Over Central New Hampshire.

by Anura Guruge



Despite the HUGE storm we had, clouds cleared around 8pm and the moon was visible.

I took this picture, with my Nikon P900 superzoom, 2-minutes after midnight. It was 0°F (-18°C). It was cold and I was standing there WITHOUT a jacket. The cold affected the Nikon more than I! This is probably way outside its operating temperature. (I haven’t checked.) The autofocus was struggling and it was handheld. Hence the blur. To be honest, I didn’t really care. It was just this dim, orange disc. So, this is the best, I have. Enjoy.

I was worried about this. Then I heard about the big storm. That got me more concerned. The eclipse, however, is going to be late. That might help. But, this is just an early heads up. Don’t get your hopes up. You will see a lot about the eclipse on the media, but clouds might be a real problem for us. OK? Sorry.

January 5 – 6, 2019, Partial Solar Eclipse Not Visible From New England (Or Even East Coast).

You might see it in the new BUT it, from the U.S., is only visible if you are westernmost Alaska. It is essentially a far-eastern eclipse. So do not feel that you missed out. Not our turn.

But, do not despair. We have a total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019, weather permitting. More on that as we get closer. OK?

January 31, 2018: Forget “Blue Moon Eclipse” In New Hampshire, Focus On The Supermoon.

by Anura Guruge


Blue Supermoon over New Hampshire Wednesday, January 31, 2018 Anura Guruge

Base skychart, as ever, from “neave.com/planetarium” — with much appreciation.


Forget the “Blue Moon Eclipse“. It will NOT be a total eclipse in New Hampshire. Nada.

It will be partial, it will be early in the morning, the moon will most likely be BELOW the New Hampshire tree line and it will be fleeting.

It really is a NON-EVENT in New Hampshire.

The Supermoon — a Blue Moon at that — Wednesday evening is a whole different matter.

It will NOT be Blue. Sorry. ‘Blue’ denotes rarity — 2nd full moon in a month.

It will not be as near to us as the 1st one on January 1, 2018.

Clouds, always a problem in New Hampshire, might be a problem.

But, definitely go out, tomorrow night and have a gander. You might even see it through the clouds.

Enjoy.

5 Things to remember & note.

  1. It will NOT be a BLUE Moon! That is just an expression — in that it is the 2nd Full Moon in the month. The other having been on January 1, 2018 — which was also a Supermoon.
    So, I repeat. The moon will NOT be blue. Not Blue. Promise.
    ….
  2. The TOTAL eclipse begins to the West of us. So we will only see a Partial Eclipse and a very partial one at that. And it will be fleeting.
    ….
  3. The Moon will set beyond the horizon, not counting our tree line, soon after the Partial Eclipse starts!
    We might see it, at most, for 3 minutes! Yes, 3 minutes. It might already be below the tree line.
    ….
  4. It is in the morning. Not at night. 6:57 am — i.e., morning.
    ….
  5. Weather could, as ever, in New Hampshire, be an issue.
