As a matter fact, the first month of this year is going to include a very rare lunar event - Super Blood Moon - to arouse amateur astronomers.

Viellet says 2019 won't have any solar or lunar events that are especially rare, like 2017's total solar eclipse, which was the first of its kind to be visible exclusively from the United States since the country's founding.

This weekend is ideal for searching for the night sky's brightest star, Sirius, and if you have good binoculars or a telescope, you can find the faint star cluster near it. Sirius is easy to see because it's so bright and because the three prominent Belt stars in the constellation Orion - three stars in a short, straight row - always point to it.

2019 is likely to be an incredible year for stargazers.

A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon blocks the entire view of the sun, leaving just the corona visible to those viewing from Earth. The longest solar Eclipse of the 21st century occurred on July 22, 2009 and lasted 6 min 39 sec.

The whole lunar eclipse will start at 10:11 am IST on January 21 (11:41pm ET, January 20) and will hold for 62 minutes, as noted by the National Geographic.

The eclipse will be visible across North and South America, as well as in parts of western Europe and Africa.

During a lunar eclipse, the moon first touches Earth's outer shadow, called a penumbra, then moves into the full shadow, called the umbra.

July's partial lunar eclipse will be the last until November 2021.
