WELTRAUM: Supermond und Mondfinsternis infographic

January 20-21, 2019 -- Nord- und Südamerika sowie Teile von Westeuropa und Afrika werden im Januar die seltene Kombination einer totalen Mondfinsternis mit einem Supermond betrachten können (voraussichtlich in Österreich nicht zu sehen). Das nächste derartige Ereignis sieht man erst 2022.

For those in Europe and Africa, the total eclipse will unfold shortly before sunrise. For those in North and South America, the eclipse can be viewed at the beginning or in the middle of the night.

The full Moon will be in the Earth's shadow from 03:34GMT to 06:51GMT.

When the eclipse begins, a shadow will move in from the left, as if taking a bite out of the Moon.

The total eclipse will last about an hour, beginning at 04:41GMT according to NASA.

During the eclipse, the Moon will still be visible, but in a shade of red. That's why a lunar eclipse is often called a "blood Moon."

Many cultures had myths of some creature temporarily swallowing the moon; the January full moon is often called the Wolf Moon, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, and may date back to Native American tribes and early Colonial times when wolves would howl outside villages.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
