don't miss this!

Tonight there is going to be a FULL LUNAR ECLIPSE!!! and what makes it special is that it is on the winter solstice, which is the best time to see it because it will be really clear! the moon will glow orange! yes, a lunar eclipse you can look at. you can't look directly at a solar eclipse. the last time there was a full lunar eclipse on the solstice was 1638 and it wont happen again until 2094! the eclipse will start at around 8:50 universal time full eclipse visible at around 11:40 universal time and end at about 13 universal time. to find out what time that is where you live see this chart- http://www.spacearchive.info/utc.htm and if you don't know what time zone you are in see this chart http://www.ferocecoaching.com/images...time-zones.gif
enjoy the eclipse!

I want to! Hubby has to be in bed before it starts, but he told me to wake him up when it does. Haha!

This is the first time a full lunar eclipse has coincided with winter solstice in 456 years, so yeah, chances are

Unfortunately for me, it's raining and very cloudy here.
