Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse

Tonight is the winter solstice, and you don't have to be a wearer of crystals and a worshiper of Stonehenge to enjoy it because this year, the winter solstice also brings a pretty lunar eclipse. Occurring between 2:40am and 4am EST and visible from all of North America, Central America and the very top of South America, tonight's celestial event will bring out more than a few sky-watchers. During the time that the Earth's shadow passes over the moon, the moon is set to glow a deep red or orange.

We are all looking forward to hopefully being able to view this tonight...... if nothing else we will be out howling and dancing!

Happy Winter Solstice to you all!
