On December 21st around 2:30 AM to 4:00 AM (US Eastern Standard Time) there will be a full Lunar Eclipse that will make the Moon appear red.
The last time this particular event occured during a winter solstice WAS IN 1638!
I just wanted to inform 10F about this one-shot event and hope you all (or most can see this).
It really should be a sight to behold if the weather is clear where one is.
P.S. Sorry about taking up another thread spot in 10F...I just thought this could be an important thing to some people seeing that it is an extremely rare occurance; after Dec. 22/23(ish) you can let this thread die if you all wish it).
Full Lunar eclipses occur pretty frequently, like one in every 1-3 years. They look the same on each particular date so if you missed this one, you may catch the next full Lunar eclipse on 2011 June 15. It is fun for the first-second time, after that it gets kinda boring.
