So what time is this so called lunar eclipse going down? According to POPSCI.com:
"For the first time since 1638, a total lunar eclipse will be visible from North America on the longest night of the year. That night just happens to be tonight, starting at 1:32 AM, so all you moon-oglers will have to stay up awfully late (or wake up perversely early) to catch it.
What makes this particularly kick-ass is that it occurs on the Winter Solstice. The last time that happened was 1638 and won't happen again until 2094!
