There’s a full lunar eclipse on Dec 21st at 3:17am Eastern Time (12:17am Pacific) which is visible from all of North America! If you have no idea what a lunar (as opposed to solar) eclipse is, check out this new JPL information video: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/video/index.cfm?id=950

For those of you more experienced with eclipses, here’s the exact data you need:

Bottom line: Go outside on the evening of Dec 20th and look up. You’ll see the copper color of the moon as the day swings to the 21st. This is the first one since Feb 2008. Enjoy!

Clear skies!
Aurora
