Yes, I got up to see the December 21st total eclipse of the moon on the Winter Solstice! Just wish I'd woke up enough to get a tripod out - could have gotten better pics - but it was pretty awesome here in Galveston. I shared these photos on Facebook so here they are for my Blogging friends.
This was taken about 1/2 hour into the eclipse. Before the eclipse started the full moon that night was very bright and white.
View of the sky taken about 2:45 a.m. (Central Time). See the little reddish dot? That’s the moon!
Oh, if I'd only got a tripod out! Thought I could hold my camera still. But what a color!
Awesome. I got a crick in my neck from looking straight up into the sky.
Again, no tripod but it was beautiful.
