Solstice Lunar Eclipse Tonight

Solstice eclipses are incredibly rare, although it will not technically occur on the exact moment of the solstice.  From what I have found, I believe this is only the second lunar solstice eclipse in the last 2,000 years. NASA's picture below shows the progression for the eastern part of the United States.

For those who have never seen the blood moon, here is a very nice time lapsed view of the recent eclipse a few years ago.
