[/caption]When I was kid I always wanted to be an Astronaut, but then again, in the Seventies what young boy didn't. Over the years my fascination with space has come and gone, but tonight will be an great time to rediscover that kid in me all over again.

Tonight is the first time in 372 years that the Winter Equinox and Total Lunar Eclipse happen on the same day.

The Winter Equinox happens ever year and marks the first day of Winter, but I am really excited for the total lunar eclipse.

According to our local forecast, we should have a partly cloudy sky tonight to witness this event at 1:40am.
