Photographer Emil Ivanov took this gorgeous shot of a total lunar eclipse back in June.
Here in New York City it can be tough to see stars even when the sky is clear, so I didn't even try to venture out in the sub-freezing temperatures to try and witness the only lunar eclipse on a winter solstice that will occur in my lifetime.
Head on outside at 1:30 a.m. Eastern time for tonight's total lunar eclipse. Lasting until about 5:00 a.m., you will have plenty of time to watch the moon in action. If you live in North America you will be particularly well positioned to view the festivities — just don't forget a warm coat and some cocoa.
