This year at the winter solstice, there will also be a lunar eclipse.

That a full lunar eclipse and winter solstice will occur on the same day is pretty rare. The Montreal Gazette says NASA said the last total lunar eclipse on winter solstice happened in 1554. The NASA page updated that to say the last coinciding solstice and full lunar eclipse was in 1638. Whichever date is correct, it's been a long, long time.

Best viewing time: 3:17am (EST)Dress warm if you go out to view the "ruddy" landscape!
