Head to the Mountains to watch the First Lunar Eclipse of the year 2020

This probably is the best time to visit Jebel Jais mountains in Ras Al Khaimah. The world will witness the first lunar eclipse (moon) of the year 2020, just a few weeks after we experienced a solar eclipse which enthralled us on the 26th of December 2019.

The first Lunar eclipse of the decade will be a penumbral lunar eclipse taking place on January 10, 2019 (Yes its a weekend!)

During this celestial event of penumbral eclipse, the Sun, the Moon and the Earth are aligned, but not in a straight line. This will cause the surface of the moon to appear to darken slightly.  This is the best time to visit Jebel Jais mountains in Ras Al Khaimah.
