Soooooo tonight at 10:33PT there is going to be a lunar eclipse!!
A rare drama will play out in tonight's skies: a full lunar eclipse on the winter solstice.
The last one occurred in 1638, according to NASA, and tonight's may be only the second one in the last two millennia.
"Since Year 1, I can only find one previous instance of an eclipse matching the same calendar date as the solstice, and that is 1638," Geoff Chester of the U.S. Naval Observatory, who inspected a list of eclipses going back 2,000 years, said on NASA's solstice lunar eclipse page. The next lunar eclipse on the winter solstice won't be such a long wait, though. It's expected in 2094.
Skywatchers expect the eclipse to occur over a three-and-a-half hour period, starting at 10:33 p.m. PT today and ending 2:01 a.m. PT tomorrow. The Earth's shadow will completely cover the moon for about 72 minutes, according to NASA's eclipse page. The shadow is likely to have a reddish hue.
Im so excited! lol. but back to the topic at hand... have ya'll seen any natural phenomena, disasters or anything?? I have seen a small tornado (VERY rare in Sacramento, it was a cool experience to say the least) but thats about all I've ever seen besides like snow ha.
