I would so love to stay up and watch this, but I have to be up at 6:30 in the morning, sooo....

For anyone keeping track, this is the first Lunar Eclipse to fall on the Winter Solstice since 1378.

  • In the most interesting parts clouds rolled in. pictures were terrrible no clear focus with the clouds in the way. and to dim for camera to focus dureing the full part of eclipse when there were no clouds.

    ..i live in Newark, Delaware EST...i watched periodically for 5 hours, it was an incredible event, not a cloud in sight....i stood for 20 mins with binoculars as the last sliver of light subsided into a grayish red...

    ...lunar eclipses are NOT rare, they do happen almost every two years (but they are only partial eclipses)..

    .the last TOTAL (full) lunar eclipse visible in the northern hemisphere happened in the 1600's.

    .at 3:17 EST, when the moon was completely buried by reddish shadows, the sky opened up to an even more spectacular sight...the constellation of Orion and the opposition of Jupiter...its was powerful..
