Thing 1: Total Lunar Eclipse Monday NightLucky us, all of North America will get treated to a total lunar eclipse, visible from beginning to end, on the night of December 20/21, the 21st also being the solstice, and thus the first solstice eclipse since 1638 and only the second in the last 2,000 years!
Thing 2: December 21Ah, yes, Tuesday, in addition to being the start of Winter (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) is also December 21, the day that many people all around the globe fear that our world, or even universe, may end. So, is all the doomsday hype justified or just a bunch of hot air? Check back for an objective examination of the 2012 Maya doomsday "prophecy."
