Once in a Lifetime

This Winter Solstice there is an astronomical event that won’t return for 456 years.

OTTAWA — This year’s winter solstice — an event that will occur next Tuesday — will coincide with a full lunar eclipse in a union that hasn’t been seen in 456 years.

The celestial eccentricity holds special significance for spiritualities that tap into the energy of the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year and a time that is associated with the rebirth of the sun.

Not only that– it’s a great excuse for a party. Stay up late on December 20th, or set your alarm. The eclipse begins at 1:33am EST, in the wee hours of the 21st.

Check the Providence Journal for Rhode Island times and weather– here’s hoping for clear skies.
