The upcoming lunar eclipse on January 20, 2019 should look similar to this previous eclipse from September 27-28, 2015. One difference is that this time the top part of the Moon should appear brighter during totality, not the bottom, because the Moon will be closer to the top edge of the Earth’s shadow.  This sequence was taken by Jim Mazur with a Canon 400D camera and a 500-mm lens.

The Owl Nebula, M97, in Ursa Major. Notice the two dark “eyes” of the owl, and the blue central star.  Photo by Jim Mazur, taken with a 14-inch Meade LX850 telescope and an SBIG ST8300M imager.
