Rock Hounding in Northeast Washington

Christmas Party the 21st

December 20th, 2010

Hello Rock Club.  Remember this coming meeting is a potluck dinner at our new Arden Community Center Building.  Setup starts at 5PM with Dinner at 6PM.

There will be a gift exchange with gifts marked for male, female, kids or “anyone”.  Gifts not more than $10.  It is a “white elephant” exchange so be prepared for some swapping.

People often bring poems, sing songs or tell stories.  So if you have something entertaining to bring, bring it.  Hope to see you there.

Be prepared for a total lunar eclipse that same night.  The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST (Monday, Dec. 20th, at 10:33 pm PST). At that time, Earth’s shadow will appear as a dark-red bite at the edge of the lunar disk. It takes about an hour for the “bite” to expand and swallow the entire Moon. Totality commences at 02:41 am EST (11:41 pm PST) and lasts for 72 minutes.
