Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse 2010

    Newer Older

    I found out earlier today about the Winter Solstice lunar eclipse so I decided to bundle up and spend some quality time with my camera tonight. I figured it would be worth it seeing as this hasn't happened since the year 1638.

    Aside from the fact that it will be the first to occur on the day of Winter Solstice in 372 years, this lunar eclipse will be followed by a meteor shower named as Ursids which is expected to peak on December 22 to 23, 2010. The Ursid meteor shower usually coincides with the winter solstice, and is best seen by polar bears since they come from near the celestial north pole.
