In case you have nothing better to do before Christmas (yeah, right), there is going to be an eclipse of the moon Monday evening or Tuesday morning (depending on your time zone). The good news is that it's going to be a total eclipse. The bad news, at least for us Easterners, is that the totality doesn't occur until about 2:45 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Even though I would like to, I doubt that I will be camping out with beer and popcorn waiting to witness this rare sight - my 'pumpkin time' rarely lasts beyond midnight. I've only seen one total eclipse many moons ago while camping in Algonquin Park and it was quite awesome to watch the shadow slowly pass over the orb. The colour is as equally striking.
If anyone - and/or your kids - hasn't seen an eclipse, it's worth the look. Who knows, you might just see Santa testing out his new GPS.
