Rare Lunar Eclispe Early Tuesday !
A very rare lunar eclispe will occur early Tuesday morning beginnig at 12:33 am-peeking at 2:15 am and ending by 4:01 am. The reason the event is so rare is that it is occuring on the Winter Solstice which begins at 5:38 pm Tuesday. The last time a total eclispe occured on the Winter Solstice was December 21st, 1638 and will not occur again until December 21st 2094 ! The forecast calls for increasing clouds overnight with lows in the mid 40s. Hopefully there will be enough breaks in those clouds to catch a glimpse of this very rare event. Slight chance for showers on Christmas Eve but Chrismtas day looks to be sunny and quite chilly with highs around 50 and dropping into the 20s Christmas night. Happy Holidays everyone ! Rex
