Did You Miss the Lunar Eclipse?

If you're like me, you were in bed, asleep during the lunar eclipse that took place the other night.  If you follow astronomy, you then know, the last time the winter solstice coincided with a total lunar eclipse on the same calendar day may have happened once in the last 2,000 years.  And I slept through it.  Too bad, because it would have been a perfect night to photograph this epic event....the sky was clear of fog, no rain, no street lights near the dairy, perfect conditions. 

Luckily, an acquaintance, Ron Forslind of Forslind Photography was up with his camera and took these fabulous shots! {Thank you Ron!} These photos are so beautiful, I asked Ron if I could share them with all of you......

Since we, most likely, won't be around for the next Solstice Lunar Eclipse, here's a neat YouTube video of this's only a minute and a half long.....

Were you awake or asleep, like me, for the lunar eclipse?

We saw only the beginnings of it; storm clouds rolled in and obliterated the view the rest of the night. Snif. As a farm girl, my mom would haul us kids out of bed to witness such delightful celestial events; thanks for e-subbing in for her, Nancy! --Ria
