A total solar eclipse will be visible on Jan 20th or 21st, depending on the time it starts at your city. The entire eclipse will only be visible in North America, South America, Mexico, United Kingdom, Canada, Greenland. The moon will turn red for less than an hour. Here's how it begins and ends.
1. Penumbral eclipse: the first stage and the moon is fainter than normal. (0 sec - about an hour)
2. Partial eclipse: the second stage and the moon is dimmer than penumbral. (1 hour - 2 hours)
3. Eclipse: the third stage, very red, very dim, only lasts for 1 hour, mag + 1.20 is its dimmest. It'll do its stage again but the opposite. (over 2 hours - less than 4 hours)
If you live in the US, UK, Mexico, South America, Canada, the entire eclipse is visible from beginning to end. If you live in West Europe and West Africa, you won't see the entire eclipse, but it'll most likely turn red, but you won't see it from beginning to end.. If you live in UAE, East Asia, and very east of Africa, you have a very bad eclipse. In Dubai, the moon sets when it's on the first stage (penumbral). In a really tiny part of Asia, it'll only be a penumbral eclipse. If you live in Hawaii, the moon will turn red but you won't see it from beginning to end. Check https://www.timeanddate.com to check when it starts in your city. The "total and "maximum" eclipse is the best to see it. See the map to check if you can see it. https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/map/2019-january-21 (pay attention to the legend!) See it because you won't see one until 2021. If you live outside the penumbral line, you can watch it live on their Youtube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E7pqfOHhy8.
