STARGAZERS will be treated to a rare total lunar eclipse in the New Year – the last for nearly two and a half years. On January 21, the full moon will become fully tinted with the red-orange colour of sunset. The spectacle will combine three fascinating events in what's known as a 'super blood moon' eclipse. And it'll be worth heading out for, as it's the last total lunar eclipse until May 2021. UK stargazers can catch the event on the morning of January 21, from around 2:37am.

For those unwilling to watch the full show, head out at around 5:15am to see the eclipse at its peak. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth’s shadow completely covers the moon.
