Happy Solstice! Lunar Eclipse and Meteor Shower Tonite!

NASA reports that this is the first time an eclipse has coincided with a solstice since December 21, 1638, and the next one won't come around again until 2094. The extravaganza in the sky doesn't end there, however, as the Ursids meteor shower will also be taking place. The earth's shadow should start showing on the moon's lower left around 1:33 a.m. EST by 2:41 a.m., the entire moon will be covered, and will stay that way for an hour.The shadow will start moving again at 3:53 a.m., and the moon will be back to normal by 5:00 a.m.
