This past Monday we had a special treat in the sky. We had a chance to witness a total lunar eclipse on a full moon on winter solstice. So, I'm a bit shy of all the details, but it was still quite awesome to witness. Also, the clouds cleared just in time for near perfect viewing. I know this is a bit off topic on what this blog usually has, but I took some pictures and some actually turned out decent. So, I'm sharing. :D
The first three came were taken thru my telescope view finder. The last was just with my not so spectacular, but pretty decent zoom camera.
