PHOTOS: While You Were Sleeping
While conditions were far from ideal, locals were able to see at least part of the show taking place in the sky tonight as we had the opportunity to watch a once-in-a-lifetime event.
A lunar eclipse. But not just any lunar eclipse; a total eclipse. And in conjunction with Winter Solstice. That hasn’t happened since 1636 and won’t happen again for 372 years.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get the full view. Living where we do, we should be used to that by now. The cloud cover obscured the moon for most of the event and prevented us from seeing a colorful moon while it was in the Earth’s shadow.
The weather didn’t stop photographer Michael Brunk from dragging his camera and tripod out into the yard and trying his luck.
