Lunar Eclipse Tonight

There is a full lunar eclipse tonight all across north America. If you have the opportunity to go outside between 11 and 1 you will be treated to a wonderful and eerie event. Unfortunately, the clouds have come to the valley of the sun so it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to see it. At about 10:30 Pacific time the earth’s shadow will begin to cross the moon’s brightly lit face. The eclipse will move eastward so those of you back east will have to stay up later.

It has been 372 years since a lunar eclipse coincided with the winter solstice. Enjoy!

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
