UPDATE – The Lunar Eclipse is starting! (can’t you tell? 😉 ):
In case (haha! always the optimist 😉 ) the weather doesn’t clear, here are some webcams where you can be sure to see the first Winter Solstice Eclipse in 300 years!
Nicest one I’ve found (but chat is full):
A truly amazingly rare combination of events may occur today.
Rare thing #1: There is a total lunar eclipse tonight starting around 9PM with “totality” at just past midnight.
Rare thing #2: It’s on the Solstice (Happy First day of Winter!)
Rare thing #3: We may be able to see it in the breaks in the clouds… in December, in Port Alberni!
Rare thing #4: There is a possibility, just maybe, that we could have a little snow on the ground. So that we could have “the red moon on the crest of the new fallen snow”
It could happen. One thing is for sure though, the Lunar Eclipse will happen no matter what. The eclipse turns the moon red why? Because it is reflecting every sunrise and sunset on Earth. Now that would be a sight to see!
Weather: Possible snow today, if this darn warmish wind goes away! Then, yes, rain.
