Break out the flashlights. When a full lunar eclipse takes place on the shortest day of the year, the planet may just get awfully dark. The upcoming Dec. 21 full moon -- besides distinguishing itself from the others in 2010 by undergoing a total eclipse -- will also take place on the same date as the solstice (the winter solstice if you live north of the equator, and the summer solstice if you live to the south).Read more: www.foxnews.com...

The way things all add up and line up in space always amazes me. And the fact that ancient cultures used to be able to predict things similar to this is also amazing. To me it's just another reminder how everything in space seems to be synchronized and running on a certain rhythm. Enjoy the read.

Ever since they outlawed sacrificing virgins in my area it took all the fun out of magic rituals, might have a few beers though!!!

I was interested in to why is this bit thrown in there?
"YOU MIGHT ALSO BE INTERESTED IN Madoff Trustee Reaches Reported $7.2B Settlement What the Tax Deal Means to Your Wallet Is the Periodic Table of Elements Wrong? The 7 deadly credit card sins>"
I was all into the article when this threw me off.

Might have been a screw up when I copied from the original article, might have grabbed an ad by mistake? Click on link as that shouldn't be in there.

Yep I revisited the link myself that is exactly what happened it copied the ad along with the article.

I am not familiar with solstice at your level. I do understand eclipse. However I do not understand the thread name, tuesday will be the darkest day in 456 years. What I am not understanding is, will the eclipse make the day stay dark longer? If it is how many hours will it be dark? Im excited about this news. I live in north central montana im thinking I should havea good view.

For he UKers here, and anyone..like me...who is rubbish at reading charts....

Wiki says...


The next total lunar eclipse will occur on December 21, 2010 at 8:17 UTC. Unlike a solar eclipse, which can only be viewed from a certain relatively small area of the world, a lunar eclipse may be viewed from anywhere on the night side of the Earth. A lunar eclipse lasts for a few hours, whereas a total solar eclipse lasts for only a few minutes at any given place.


Also says this....


Coordinated Universal Time (abbreviated UTC)[1] is the time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. Computer servers, online services and other entities that rely on having a universally accepted time use "Coordinated Universal Time" for that purpose. Though there are scientific differences (explained below) between "Coordinated Universal Time" and the time standard known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) - in the very broadest sense as understood by non-scientists, "Coordinated Universal Time" in essence is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). When times are listed as being "UTC" - this is de facto the equivalent of "GMT".



So if i am reading this correctly, that UTC is the same as GMT, the UK should see this at 8:17am and it should last a few hours.....right?

If anyone could confirm this i would be most grateful.

CX.

We're still allowed to sacrifice virgins here, but the problem is that there aren't any virgins left to sacrifice.
Seriously though, I've only just learned that there will be a lunar eclipse on the day of the solstice, & I'm not a total tree-hugging hippie, but I think it is a very ominous sign.

Wait, a Lunar Eclipse doesn't suggest Earth will be in the dark, that would be called a "Solar Eclipse". Lunar is when the sunlight will no longer be reflecting off the moon, at least from what I understand from reading www.differencebetween.net...

The luster will be a bit "off" on Dec. 21st, the first day of northern winter, when the full Moon passes almost dead-center through Earth's shadow. For 72 minutes of eerie totality, an amber light will play across the snows of North America, throwing landscapes into an unusual state of ruddy shadow. The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST (Monday, Dec. 20th, at 10:33 pm PST). At that time, Earth's shadow will appear as a dark-red bite at the edge of the lunar disk. It takes about an hour for the "bite" to expand and swallow the entire Moon. Totality commences at 02:41 am EST (11:41 pm PST) and lasts for 72 minutes.


I am thinking because the moon usually reflects a lot of light especially during the winter months due to the snow. So it seems the reduction in normal light being reflected from the moon + the shortest day of the year for the northern hemisphere will = the darkest day in 456 yrs?
