when: early morning December 21st 2010 | 1:33am – 5:01am EST
where: visible from North America, Greenland and Iceland – Western Europe will see the beginning stages of the eclipse before moonset – western Asia will get the later stages after moonrise
Get some sleep the night of December 19-20 because you SHOULD struggle up to glimpse the full lunar eclipse (weather permitting) the night of December 20-21. The window of opportunity for seeing the eclipse is nearly 3.5 hours, pretty good chance to see it.
And how cool is it that the Winter Solstice is 6:38pm EST the same day?
Seems like a good time to dance around a flame.
OK, just wake up and see the eclipse. Doesn’t happen all that often…
