Ephemeris for Thursday, December 26th. Today the Sun will be up for 8 hours and 48 minutes, setting at 5:07, and it will rise tomorrow at 8:19. The Moon is new today, and won’t be visible. |
Today’s new moon has already produced the last solar eclipse of the 2010s overnight, visible mostly in Asia. The first eclipse of the new decade, the 2020s, will be January 10th, a very slight lunar eclipse called a penumbral eclipse where the Moon appears slightly shaded, but will appear whole. That said, it occurs during our day time, so we won’t see it. We will have two more penumbral lunar eclipses visible from our area next year. In all there are 8 total or partial lunar eclipses visible from our area next decade. The first is a total eclipse May 26, 2021. There will be 6 solar eclipses visible from here next decade including the Total eclipse visible from the Mexican to Canadian borders on April 8, 2024. It will be a deep partial eclipse here.
The times given are for the Traverse City/Interlochen area of Michigan. They may be different for your location.
