Watching the Total Lunar Eclipse of Dec. 20-21 Live Online

(Apologies: I mistakenly wrote Dec. 21-22. The correct date is above, early Tuesday morning on East Coast of the US, late Monday night on the West Coast.)

For those of us not fortunate enough to be able to see this winter's solstice lunar eclipse live, whether because of location, weather or other circumstances, the Internet offers the opportunity to watch it in real time online. The Astronomer's Without Borders site keeps an updated list of sites that will webcast the eclipse in real time, together with their locations and equipment used. This should be an interesting supplement even for those who are able to watch live.

To "Clear skies and fair viewing" we must now add "and good Internet connections"!
