happy solstice everyone

December 21, 2010

We missed the eclipses b/c we both thought ‘midnight dec 21st’ meant the EVENING of the 21st not the morning of the 21st but whatever.

Next total lunar eclipse viewable from NA is in 2014 so it’s not the end of the world.

I was a bit sad I missed it but mostly just annoyed at how we refer to time between 2 days.

It’s just like ‘this thursday’ vs ‘next thursday’ and how I just want to slap people who assume one or the other.

anyway – happy solstice. Turn on your lights and make it through tonight, it’s all uphill from here until midsummer.

    The way to remember it is midnight is 00:00, it’s the very start of the day because it’s the lowest time.πŸ˜‰

    So the period described by midnight on the 21st to midnight on the 22nd is the day of the 21st.
