Total Lunar Eclipse on Yule  

Posted in

In case you haven't heard, there will be a Total Lunar Eclipse happening around the Winter Solstice.

The eclipse will happen Monday night (TONIGHT!) on the West Coast and during the very early hours of Tuesday morning on the East Coast. Western Europe will only see the start of the spectacle and western Asia will only see the tail end.

Since the eclipse coincides with the Winter Solstice, the moon will appear high in the sky. The recent volcanic eruptions around the globe have dumped tons of dust into the atmosphere, so scientists predict the moon may appear darker than usual during the eclipse, glowing an eerie red or brown instead of the usual orange-yellow tinge.
