Moonrise...

Here comes the full moon, rising up in the eastern sky. A few hours from now, on the day marked by the winter solstice, we will witness a lunar eclipse. NASA reports that this is the first time an eclipse has coincided with a solstice since 12/21/38 and the next one won't happen until 2094 which means this is the only lunar eclipse happening on a solstice I will have the opportunity to witness in my entire life. Momentous!
