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

Plus....a lunar eclipse happens at night...for those viewing it. So how can it be the darkest day in 456 years?

Agreed. Silly article.

Plus, the twerp mentions the entire planet, not the Northern Hemisphere. It will be the longest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere.

I guess they don't emphasize basic science in J-school.
