Countdown to The Winter Solstice 2023

We gain one minute of sunlight every day until summer solstice.

Countdown to Christmas 2023

Countdown to Spring Equinox 2024

Countdown to the Next Total Lunar Eclipse 2024

Note:  Total solar eclipses happen when the New Moon comes between the Sun and Earth and casts the darkest part of its shadow, the umbra, on Earth.

Countdown to the Next Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2024

Note:  A penumbral lunar eclipse takes place when the Moon moves through the faint, outer part of Earth's shadow, the penumbra. This type of eclipse is not as dramatic as other types of lunar eclipses and is often mistaken for a regular Full Moon.

Countdown to Summer Solstice 2023

We lose one minute of sunlight every day until winter solstice.

Countdown to the Next Annular Solar Eclipse 2023

Note:  An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon covers the Sun's center, leaving the Sun's visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire” or annulus around the Moon.

Countdown to the Next Partial Lunar Eclipse 2023

Note:  Partial solar eclipses happen when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, but the Moon only partially covers the Sun's disk.
