I know but the winter solstice. Longest night of the year.

Can't we just give you some nanoprobes?
there's only so much cybernetic lifeforms can do. I'm already using nanoprobes to maintain my GPA.

Sure, it has to pick the one week out of the year where it rains in L.A.

I think it's the solar eclipse that happens once in a lifetime. Than again a lifetime is much longer these days compared to when an eclipse was cause for panic.

Yeah, total solar eclipses are like every 70 years? Maybe more often, but then it depends on where you're located as to whether or not you experience it. We were supposed to have one when I was in high school, but then it was cloudy that day so it just got darker for a bit.
Lunar eclipses are every year or two, but this was on the winter solstice so some people considered it a bigger deal for whatever reason.

Haha sorry for the obvious info being left out of the OP, but I see that some of you here have filled in the gaps.


The Next Full Lunar Eclipse to occur during winter solstice will be in 2094.

I'll be 102 years old

I'll host a party then for all of 10F :p



Also, it's too bad that the weather wasn't working with some of you. I had clear skys, but alas...my photos looks like red spheres instead of an actual moon
