    It seems that the first time in about 380 years there will be a full lunar eclipse on the winter solstice. My bet is that many Wicans and other Pagans will be celebrating most of the night tonight. And as an added attraction this one will be topped off by the Ursid meteor shower.

    Should be a hell of a show for sky watchers of any religion.

    Actually it's been 456 years since the lunar eclipse occurred on the Winter Solstice. Sadly, it's cloudy and rainy here. I would have loved to have seen it.

    Hmm, my source said 372 years. 1638 being the last time. Not that it matters; none of us was there to see it.....
