Not sure how many of you will see it. It's mostly on our side of the pond.

The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST (Monday, Dec. 20th, at 10:33 pm PST). [...] Totality commences at 02:41 am EST (11:41 pm PST) and lasts for 72 minutes.

Yeah, we'll be able to look up at the clouds and wonder here in "sunny" Seattle.

We might not be able to see it down in the low countries :(

The lunar eclipse happens in the early morning of Tuesday just as the moon starts to set behind the horizon.
