First time in 372 years...a stargazing phenomenon!

"For the first time in 372 years, the winter equinox and a total lunar eclipse happen on the same day, and North America is one of the best spots to view the show."

"The lunar eclipse with begin in 2:40 in the morning on the East coast and will last 72 minutes. A little bit more than 14 hours later, the winter solscist occurs, when the North Pole is farthest from the sun."

 Of course, I'm going to have my camera out to record this awesome phenomenon, tomorrow on Tuesday the 21st of December.
