Didn't see this posted.

Looks like there will be a lunar eclipse of the moon on the solstice. Should be visible to the Northern hemisphere starting around 1:33 AM EST.

Hoping for clear skies that night. Plan to shoot it with the 5D Mk II through the AP160 telescope, and a wide angle time-lapse with the D90.

Stellarium has the moon half in shadow at 07:13 on 2010-12-21 from Portsmouth UK, but it will be very low in the west. Certainly won't be able to see it from my house, but might be worth travelling if no cloud :)

My last solar eclipse photos were taken with film back in the last 90s. This one I attempted with a stop watch and cable release:
