This eclipse will be visible in its entirety from Asia, Europe and Africa. The view of this eclipse from Perth will be limited, as totality begins around the time of twilight. This eclipse may not be particularly dark as the moon doesnt travel far into the Earths shadow. The moon will be in the constellation of Gemini, being less than 2 degrees from the naked eye star delta Geminorum.

Observation:

I woke up and wandered outside around 4am and was greeted with a glorious red moon setting below the houses to the west. It was too low to take any pictures or get the telescope out. Unfortunately I dont have a good view from where I live :(

Pictures:

The Astronomy Picture of the Day for 18th of January had an outstanding picture of the eclipse.
