Yes, I got up last night at 2:30am to take a peek at the lunar eclipse. It was actually pretty cool. Took a pic (a pretty bad pic actually but you can get the gist). Life list has been updated!
What was special with this one is that it coincided with the winter solstice. This is apparently very rare:
This lunar eclipse falls on the date of the northern winter solstice. How rare is that? Total lunar eclipses in northern winter are fairly common. There have been three of them in the past ten years alone. A lunar eclipse smack-dab on the date of the solstice, however, is unusual. Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory inspected a list of eclipses going back 2000 years. “Since Year 1, I can only find one previous instance of an eclipse matching the same calendar date as the solstice, and that is 1638 DEC 21,” says Chester. “Fortunately we won’t have to wait 372 years for the next one…that will be on 2094 DEC 21.”
