Total Lunar Eclipse - Dec. 21, 2010

I try to keep you informed of important celestial events as part of our Outdoor Ministry.  Psalms 19:1 tells us that "The heavens declare the glory of GOD".  In the very early morning hours of December 21 there will be such a display. 

Starting at 12:33am CST 12/21/2010 (that is a little after midnight the night of 12/20/2010) the last total lunar eclipse visible this far north for centuries will begin.  Total eclipse should start at 1:41am CST and will end at 2:53am CST.  There will not be another total lunar eclipse this far north in the sky dome until December 21, 2485!  This eclipse also occurs almost simultaneously with the Winter Solstice. 

I know it will be difficult for many of you to view because of the time of night/early morning.  But for those that make the extra effort and brave the chilly air they will be witnesses to the "heavens declaring the glory of GOD"!  I hope you get to see it.
