Lunar Eclipse
21-DEC-2010

Lunar Eclipse

Last seen in 1638
Next sighting will be in 2094!

This lunar eclipse was a very rare event.
Aside from the fact that it was the first to occur on the day of Winter Solstice in 372 years, this lunar eclipse will be followed by a meteor shower named as Ursids which is expected to peak on
December 22 to 23, 2010.
The Ursid meteor shower usually coincides with the winter solstice, and is best seen by polar bears since they come from near the celestial north pole.

Neat image. Extra points for being up at that early AM time to view this lovely sight. V.

(I wonder when it last happened that a polar bear, while viewing an eclipse on the Solstice, was hit by an Ursid fragment ?)
