Last time a total lunar eclipse happened on the winter's solstice was on Dec. 21, 1638. With the possible exception of BTExpress, none of us were around to witness that. And minutely few of us will be around to see it again in the year 2094.
I suppose there's some sort of spiritual thing I should have felt as the clouds parted, and I watched that last sliver of white disappear, but I don't think I did. Probably the same feeling I should have watching the first sliver of white reappear at the end of it, but I'm going to miss that. It's freakin' 1° out there!
Not the most spectacular lunar eclipse I've seen (lower in the horizon/"bigger" moon), but this one was pretty cool. And it marks the first day of winter, meaning the days will be getting longer. And that's going to be a welcome thing!
Happy Winter Solstice to all!
