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.
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.
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.
