I wish I had pictures, but the cloud cover was too spotty and it was so cold that I couldn’t feel my toes. In any case, the lunar eclipse was lovely, and I’m glad we got up early to see it. According to The Bad Astronomer, it’ll be a few years before we get another chance. As usual, he has a great post about lunar eclipses that doesn’t include any “full moons/eclipses make you crazy” crap. I <3 Phil Plait.
Today also happens to be the winter solstice, which also happens to be my 2nd wedding anniversary. My husband has already gone back to bed, which is where I am headed. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our Solstiversary than to sleep in and snuggle after seeing his first lunar eclipse.
Happy Winter Solstice, everyone! The days start getting longer after today – hooray!
