    For a few hours on the night of Dec. 20 to Dec. 21, the attention of tens of millions of people will be drawn skyward, where the mottled, coppery globe of our moon will hang completely immersed in the long, tapering cone of shadow cast out into space by our Earth. If the weather is clear, favorably placed skywatchers will have a view of one of nature's most beautiful spectacles: a total eclipse of the moon.

    The total phase of the upcoming event will be visible across all of North and South America, as well as the northern and western part of Europe, and a small part of northeast Asia, including Korea and much of Japan. Totality will also be visible in its entirety from the North Island of New Zealand and Hawaii a potential viewing audience of about 1.5 billion people. This will be the first opportunity from any place on earth to see the moon undergo a total eclipse in 34 months.

    We most likely won't be seeing it. We are having a major snow event.....LOL

    Only thing we get to see is the snowflakes piling up.

    A lunar eclipse is an awesome sight to see. The lore associated with it is fascinating.

    We may be covered in rain here. I remember one back in the summer of 1996 or 1997 in Oregon - It was the most surrealistic thing I have ever seen.

    Mr Dog woke me up, I wish my camera was capable of better photos...I remember an eclipse when I was a kid, my dad had a great old DSL and got some amazing photos. This was the best I got, using the mailbox as a tripod in the wind. It sure was clear here though, what a sight.
