Lunar Eclipse Tonight

If the clouds don’t obscure it, we’ll be able to see a rare lunar eclipse coinciding with the winter solstice starting at about 12:33 tomorrow morning. The last time this occurred was in 1638! The moon will be almost directly overhead, so it will be quite easy to see the eclipse in a clear sky, but of course, when skies are partly cloudy, it’s hard to predict exactly where clouds will be at any one time. At any rate, it might well be worth the trouble to get outside and take a look.
