Winter Solstice - Total Lunar Eclipse 2010

So did you get to see it? Sadly due to immense fog we didn’t . Shame given that the last time it fell on the winter Solstice was nearly 400 years ago. But not to worry the next one on the Solstice (oh ok a day before) will be in the comparatively short amount of time in 2029!

For those of you who might not quite know how a lunar eclipse works it’s where the Moon passes through the shadow created by the Earth blocking the Sun’s light. This creates an effect where the moon colour appears to be a shade of red/pink.
I found the above youtube clip and really liked it, clear and without newreporters adding their own comments you can sit back and watch the beauty.

Wow! Thank you for the great find! We were sleeping (we forgot to set the alarm) it was just as well... a friend said it was hard to see. It was awesome. Thanks a lot.
