Wordless Wednesday: Winter Lunar Eclipse

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know Tuesday, Dec. 21, 2010, was a special day. It was a lunar eclipse on the winter solstice. The next time this will happen is 2094 although the next lunar eclipse visible from North America should happen on April 15, 2014 ( opens in a new windowaccording to CNN) – what a way to celebrate tax deadline day!

So I set my alarm for 2 a.m., bundled up and watched the eclipse happen ’til about 2:45 a.m. I still haven’t figured out all the settings on my camera and although I didn’t capture a photo of the big orange moon, I’m somewhat pleased with these two.
