winter solstice lunar eclipse, eh?

time to get my cauldron of goat's blood, and paint my face in tribute to the gods.

That's interesting, wouldn't that make it the darkest day ever or at least for the century?

I'll try to check that out tonight. Jörmungandr, you'll have to forgive me I don't have a get up like that but I might be able to rummage a darth vader mask out of the kids' toy box ;).

Don, this sounds so cool! Thanks for the heads-up.

From your link:

"The start of the total eclipse is expected around 2:41 a.m, when the entire moon passes through the Earth's umbra, or inner shadow, which blocks all direct sunlight from reaching the moon. The moon will take on a vibrant red color until 3:35 a.m., according to NASA."

So, if I've got this right, I believe the times posted above are Eastern Standard Time. I think for us in the Mountain Time Zone the moon's full eclipse would begin at 12:41 a.m. (12/21) and appear red in color until 1:35 a.m. Does this seem correct, or do I err?

I have long liked astronomy, and am intrigued enough that I might try to catch this. Wish I had a good telescope. Thanks again.

Correct on the times. I adjusted to MST in my original post~

"The December 21 lunar eclipse is expected to last about three-and-a-half hours from its start as a partial eclipse at 1:33 a.m. ET (11:33 PM MST) to its finish at 5:01 a.m. ET (3:01 AM MST), according to NASA."
