Astro-Porn of the Day: Partial Lunar Eclipse Tonight!

Don't forget! If you live somewhere that isn't clouded over - or if the clouds clear up later tonight - be sure to watch the total lunar eclipse! Everyone in North America will be able to watch the totality.

NASA says, "If you're planning to dash out for only one quick look -­ it is December, after all -­ choose this moment: 03:17 am EST (17 minutes past midnight PST). That's when the Moon will be in deepest shadow, displaying the most fantastic shades of coppery red."

Enjoy!
