Taken moments before the lunar eclipse on 12/20/2010. This day happens to also be the winter solstice, the first time these two events have happened at the same time since 1638. While this photo is certainly not the best example of moon photography, I’m sure it was certainly better than what they had back then, which would have been to make a sketch.

I have a friend who has had problems with “the moon being in his face” while trying to sleep. I’m sure he had a few extra moments of peace tonight while the moon passed through the earth’s shadow!
