OTTAWA — "This year's winter solstice — an event that will occur next Tuesday — will coincide with a full lunar eclipse in a union that hasn't been seen in 456 years."
[...]
"The eclipse will start just after midnight Eastern Time on Tuesday, with the main event starting at 1:30 a.m. ET and lasting until 5:30 a.m., when the moon reappears."

This should be at it's zenith at 3:17am Tuesday morning. Well worth setting your alarm for.
