You can go over here to see a few more details on the eclipse...
Since a full lunar eclipse will happen on the winter solstice only once in our lives (unless Methuselah is out there somewhere), Donna and I are planning to ride our mtn bikes starting at 2:50 A.M. Tuesday morning from our house.
What the hell?
Yes, Donna and I are planning to ride our mountain bikes from our house, starting at 2:50 A.M. Tuesday morning. Butt on saddle, out the driveway. The conditions may be iffy with cloud cover, but, dangit, there's still an eclipse happening up there. It'll be pretty dark for a full moon! The height of Totality is going to happen at 3:17, which is when the moon will be in the deepest part of the Earth's shadow. We want to be in the woods on our bikes when it happens.
"How the heck am I supposed to pull this off?" you ask.
Go to bed as soon as you get home from work. Wake up in time to get to our house and on your bike for the 2:50 start time. Ride. Get cleaned up, stop for breakfast, and go to work. Sleep on your desk knowing you did something very few other people pulled off on this winter solstice. You can thank us later.
Post up or show up if you're interested! You can email me, too.
