(Web Desk) - A first partial solar eclipse of the new year will be observed today (Sunday) as the moon passes between Earth and the sun, however, its visibility depends on your location. The last total solar Eclipse over Germany in 1999, came to a total of two and a half minutes.

The annular eclipse occurs when the circumference of the sun shines brightly from behind the moon. Cue a partial lunar eclipse, which is not visible to North America.

Total lunar eclipse begins: 11:41 p.m. (January 20). But other times there are three during the same eclipse season.

But for real astronomers, a lunar eclipse isn't a scientifically important event.

During the total eclipse the moon will turn copper orange as the earth blocks light from the sun, leading to the term blood moon. Although eclipses are typically thought of as being when the Moon passes in front of the Sun, technically speaking they also describe when a planet appears to cross the disk of the Sun. These will offer the viewers a huge blood moon.

NASA has created an interactive path of the eclipse using Google Maps to track the trajectory of the eclipse.

The partial solar eclipse as seen from Calgary, Alberta, on May 20, 2012, captured at maximum eclipse.

January is the next partial Eclipse of the sun.

A partial solar eclipse is not safe to watch with bare eyes and specific glasses are available in the market that can be bought to watch this phenomenon without damaging the eyes.

Partial umbral eclipse ends: 12:51 a.m. (January 21) The moon completely exits the shadow.

This partial solar eclipse is the first of six in 2019.

The Super Blood Wolf Moon will be visible across North and South America, parts of western Europe and Africa.

The total solar Eclipse is especially true, therefore, as a particularly spectacular sky phenomenon because it offers the people of earth the opportunity to observe a range of the sun's atmosphere, called the solar corona.

"Do not forget the Mercury Transit in November as it's the last one until 2032", warns Xavier Jubier from Paris, France, an eclipse-chaser and member of International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group on Solar Eclipses.
