There’s a once in a lifetime opportunity coming your way starting Monday night, December 20th, finishing on early Tuesday morning, December 21st. For the first time since 1638, we will have a total lunar eclipse occurring on the Winter Solstice.
Don’t miss out! This is an exciting chance to soak in your hot tub and view a rare celestial event at the same time.
According to reports, the best views of the lunar eclipse will be in North and Central America, if weather permits. The eclipse will begin at 10:33 p.m. Pacific Time, with the lunar eclipse reaching totality at 11:41 p.m. Once total eclipse is achieved, the moon will be bathed in a dark red shadow, caused by the Earth blocking the moon from the sun—the perfect color, given that Christmas is just around the corner.
Cross your fingers for a sky clear enough to view the eclipse, trot out to your hot tub, and enjoy a show only Mother Nature could provide as a terrific holiday treat. If you snooze, well, you lose…you’ll have to wait another 84 years for this occasion to grace our skies again.
