NEOA-JBS observed, registered and published data for the total lunar eclipse in 21 January 2019. 

The minimum global magnitude of the eclipsed moon was estimated to -1.5. This is a little fainter than predictions made by Helio Vital, who pointed a minimum magnitude around -2.7. This suggests that eclipse was darker than predited.

Observers did Danjon estimates and the mean value was between L=1.5 and L=2.5 during totality.

Marcelo Zurita (BRAMON) shared its meteoroid flash registered at 04:41:38 UT.

A total of 19 observers shared their data and results were published in NEOA's Newsteller called Observe! February 2019. This newsletter is freely available at link: until 24 February. [After 25 Feb., the March's Observe! issue will available at same link]
