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 (according 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.
