lunar eclipse

lunar eclipse

Last December 13, 2009, star gazers and sky watching enthusiasts marvelled at the glowing Geminid meteor shower. If you didn't catch that, there's good news for you because next Tuesday there's another meteor shower reports say from

The Ursids meteor shower isn't supposedly bright enough as the Geminid, but the stars and the moon are aligned on a very nice position on this night that the Ursids meteor shower will be visible.

There will be a Lunar Eclipse on December 20 or 21 depending on the area and thus, we will have a darker sky, but the stars will be brighter and the meteor shower seen. It will be visible throughout North and Central America from 11:41 p.m. PST Monday until 12:53 a.m. Tuesday, the first such eclipse in almost three years.

So a rare treat for anyone who marvels at nightsky activity and you'll have to be ready for it as there isn't another lunar eclipse till 2014!
