Solar eclipse of January 6, 2019 and Ukrainian Orthodox Church split from Russia

 The solar eclipse of January 6, 2019 was a partial solar eclipse that was visible in East Asia and the North Pacific.

The maximal phase (71%) of the partial eclipse was recorded in Sakha Republic (Russia).

The eclipse was observed in Japan, the Russian Far East, North and South Korea, eastern China, eastern Mongolia and northwest Alaska.

Ukrainian Orthodox Christians Formally Break From Russia

ISTANBUL — The spiritual leader of Eastern Orthodox Christians worldwide recognized the independence of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine in a four-hour ceremony in Istanbul on Sunday, formalizing a split with the Russian church to which it had been tied for more than four centuries.

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, the spiritual leader, handed a Tomos of Autocephaly containing a decree of independence to the newly appointed Metropolitan Epiphanius of Ukraine, cleaving millions of Ukrainians from the Russian Orthodox Church.

The independence effort outraged political and religious leaders in Russia. But for President Petro O. Poroshenko of Ukraine, who stood before an elevated throne throughout the ceremony in Istanbul, the occasion was an affirmation of independence from Russian influence in his embattled country and a boost ahead of elections in March.

Interesting that the partial solar eclipse yesterday over Russia coincided with Orthodox Christmas and the break away of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church from Russia.

Yesterday's Solar Eclipse Was First of Six Eclipses In 2019 With 'Super Wolf Blood Moon' Up Next
