Default Amazing Spectacle: Total Lunar Eclipse Monday Night

Quote:
For a few hours on the night of Dec. 20 to Dec. 21, the attention of tens of millions of people will be drawn skyward, where the mottled, coppery globe of our moon will hang completely immersed in the long, tapering cone of shadow cast out into space by our Earth..........

The total phase of the upcoming event will be visible across all of North and South America, as well as the northern and western part of Europe, and a small part of northeast Asia, including Korea and much of Japan. Totality will also be visible in its entirety from the North Island of New Zealand and Hawaii a potential viewing audience of about 1.5 billion people.

I really, really hope that I won't miss this.
*Looks at sky*
And that it won't be too cloudy to be visible >:

I'd love to see a lunar eclipse. I've never seen one! So like... You need sunglasses to look at it right?

..wait, what's this?!
Quote:
Conversely, much of the United Kingdom and parts of western and northern Europe will see the moon set during totality on the morning of Dec. 21. Because of low altitude and bright morning twilight, observers in these locations may not see much of the moon at all after it slips completely into the Earth's shadow.

Lunar eclipse (moon turning to red) doesn't need you wear sunglasses. Lol
It's the Solar Eclipse (sun blocks by moon) in which you need to wear sunglasses.

I think. Lol
I've only seen Lunar eclipse once..
And solar thrice in my whole 19years of life. ;-;

The moon hates us. Either way, Imma try to check on it who knows maybe I'll get a glimpse of it.


EDIT:
To those whose place is the area in which can see the Lunar Eclipse, please take a picture and post it here! D:

For the first time in 372 years, the winter equinox and a total lunar eclipse happen on the same day, and North America is one of the best spots to view the show.

Extremely bright moon, looks more like a star, early stage of the eclipse.


Smaller, more concetrated, perhaps dimmer moon, a bit later.




The moon pulls a magic trick and becomes nearly invisible. To the camera anyway. It's that small orange blip. It's actually a small circle, dark orange. The surrounding sky is darker, easier to see stars.

stood outside watching it for quite a while with my friend on the phone, lololol.
Managed to see it going into lunar eclipse before it finished and... GOT OBSCURED BY CLOUDS. ;_;

Lovely night though. Many visible stars.
