Lunar Eclipse

This morning there was a lunar eclipse. It was was the first total lunar eclipse to occur on the day of the Winter Solstice since 1638. Pretty cool, huh? I took these pictures at 12:37, 1:24, and at 1:53. You can just barely make out the moon in the last one. It was fun to see the progression as it took place. Unfortunately I was unable to get pictures of the eclipse as it ended. The clouds rolled in and blocked everything soon after the total eclipse. I am thrilled we were able to see it before the clouds came.
