total lunacy

Did you know?  Tomorrow night there's a total eclipse of the moon!  Yay.  Make plans to be outside at around 11:30PM, the total eclipse will begin at 11:40PM and last for over an hour, until 12:53AM.  Tomorrow is also the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, which means the moon will be as far North as it can be.  The last time there was a full lunar eclipse on the Winter Solstice was 1638, and the next one will be in 2094, so unless you're really young (or really old) this is the event of a lifetime!  (Now, let's all hope it doesn't rain!!)

Total lunacy!
