At approx 2:40am EST Tuesday morning you will witness something that hasn’t been seen in 372 years… a Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice. The Moon officially turns Full in the Northern Hemisphere at 3:13am EST on the 21st, at that time we will be in Mid-Eclipse. We won’t officially turn to winter until 6:38pm EST (Thanks John!). Dating back to year 1, yes, the last 2000 years this has only happen one time, in the 1600’s and it won’t happen again until a closer 2094. The eclipse will last 1 hour and 10 minutes or until 3:51am EST. Watch the Full Moon turn red tonight with me!
Here are some photos from previous eclipses.
