A silly article - a solstice on a new moon would be much darker.

“The darkest day in 500 years comes on obama’s watch...”

The solstice sounds racist (s/)

Besides the items mention about the stupidity of the article, it’s not informative, either: At no point does it say what time the eclipse is going to be. Maybe I missed it....

From Wikipedia: A total lunar eclipse will take place on December 20/21, 2010.[2] It will be visible after midnight Eastern Standard Time on December 21 in North and South America.

They must not be counting inauguration day in 2009.

I didn’t know space.com (from whence this article came) hired high schoolers to write its articles.

So, a short day with a dark night will be a dark day with a long night?

I'm lost.

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

The Maya calendar predicts the end of the world to occur on December 21, 2012.

Is this coming Tuesday the start of the apocalypse, or were the Maya’s off by only 2 years, exactly?

Note to self: don’t do any chores until next Wednesday....buy more tinfoil.

The darkest day in the last 456 years was the day Obama got elected president.

An eclipse during a full moon will at one point exhibit their beloved crescent. This happening on the shortest and darkest day in 456 years.

Muzzies live by symbolism. Tuesday might be a good day to keep an extra eye out for suspicious behavior and stay away from malls and large crowds......IMO.

Any terrorist attack (successful or not) will keep people home during the busiest few shopping days of the year. There have already been reports of a Mumbai-style attack somewhere in the EU or the US over the holidays.

Be careful, my FRiends and use your head.

Actually wouldn’t it be a hoot if all the Maya 2012 talk etc. ended up being miscalculated on our part....and this is the 2012 year predicted by their very accurate calender system?

The start of a new age, the world magnetic poles shift, and a new man emerges...

Maybe the special spaceship will appear in the sky and save a few?

I’ll be sure to break out the welding gear.
That and my phalanx of Christmas lights ought to keep things lit up in my neighborhood.

The day congress makes butt humping normal in the military is the darkest day of US history.

Wait a minute, I thought the darkest day was January 20, 2009. The annoited one became the president, the oceans parted, the lion and the lamb laid down together and everything was good because Obama declared it.. It turned out none of the above happened and the lights went out in America as the darkest days in American history begin to last for a total of 4 years of darkness of an evil dictator that hates america

Has anyone weighed in yet on what's really going on?

Isn't obvious to all yet? The scientific calculations are in. The result is not good.

I have noticed a trend for the past six months and it's scares the hell out of me.
Each day for the past six months has been two minutes shorter than the day before!!

If something isn't done, I predict that by March there will be 24 hours of night and the Sun disappears altogether!

Something must be done about the urgent problem of Global Darkening!!
The Science is settled! We must act now or we're doomed!!

a full lunar eclipse takes place on the shortest day of the year

Hey, THAT's nothin'! Check THIS out:

This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address could occur on the same day. It is an ironic juxtaposition of events: one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little perspective, wisdom or credibility for prognostication...while the other involves a groundhog.
Yes, please DO spam your friends with it...

When a full lunar eclipse takes place on the shortest day of the year, the planet may just get awfully dark.

A lunar eclipse hides the moon. A solar eclipse hides the sun.

Bright and sunny in the Middle East.

I imagine it will be tomorrow, too. 'Til the sun sets around 5:00 p.m. anyway...
