There was not a cloud in the sky last night during the lunar eclipse, and we had a great view through our front windows. The last lunar eclipse to occur on the Winter Solstice was in 1638.

Total eclipse and Orion. See Betelgeuse?
Emerging from the shadow. See how much brighter the moon is here compared to the last image?
Brilliant night–even when it was dark.
