Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse ( Dec. 21st )

Interestingly, after this year, we'll have a long time to wait until we have a December full moon occur on the same date as the solstice: Dec. 21, 2094! And even more interesting – just like this year – that same full moon will fall into Earth's shadow in a total lunar eclipse.

Re: Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse ( Dec. 21st )

Partial eclipse this Tuesday folks!


The eclipse will be visible in Switzerland – where 67 per cent of the sun will disappear – most of Europe, North Africa and central Asia.

The solar occurrence will be at its height at 9.09am in Geneva, 9.11 in Bern and 9.14 in St Gallen.

The last eclipse with such coverage in Switzerland goes back to August 11, 1999, when the sun was almost completely covered by the moon.

Switzerland saw its last total eclipse back in July 1842

Ah, looks like you're right (as usual!)

Boooooooo Nebelfelder.

(Is there a website that details how high the 'ceiling' is expected to be? It's just possible that, say, the top of the Pfannenstiel might be above it... stranger things have happened...)
