Lunar Eclipse on Solstice

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" Stare at the sky? Why? Because it's there!

Tonight, smack dab on Solstice, there will be a total lunar eclipse. The bored gods have arranged this unusual celestial event to recognize the hard work of Pagans everywhere, toward the goal of re-establishing Divinity in all its fantastic pluralism.

And so, my friends, arise tonight in the darkest hours, wrap yourself in warm blankets, and behold a gift from Those Who Would Be Re-established!

Smile, Luna. All eyes are on You tonight. Blessed be Luna, now and forever.

I'd wondered what this unusual occurrence could mean, but was clueless. I like your interpretation of it, though. :)

Happy Yule!!! :D

I'm taking my telescope and blankets a thermos of hot tea and a bunch of blankets..I have a feeling we will be giggling and acting like 8 year olds..

As night flows towards morning, the cloudy skies above also dim, in honor of this longest Dark.
Faintly then, yet stronger every minute, the clouds re-brighten, cheering on the sun's rebirth.
Soon, it will be Dawn! <3

((Pesky clouds! but I still stood outside for a bit every hour to watch for Sky, and be mindful of the Solstice))
