Lunar Eclipse

It looks like the weather won't let us see it, but a total lunar eclipse will occur late Monday night to Tuesday morning. Some of us may be getting up early for snow desk duty wishing we could look up and see it.

Just so you know, the last time a total luncar eclipse happened at southern solstice time was in 1638. That was apparently overlooked by NASA, to which a 1554 date is attributed in one news story I found online. The 1554 event happened, it just wasn't the most recent occurence as described. Lesson for news reporters: even experts make mistakes.
