Lunar Eclipse Tonight!

There will be a total eclipse of the moon EARLY Tuesday morning the 21st.  According to the NASA web-site:

“The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST [12:33 am CST]. 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 ES [1:41 am CST] and lasts for 72 minutes.”

It looks like we’re going to have “mostly cloudy” skies and maybe freezing drizzle, even – but it’s worth a shot.
