Solstice Lunar Eclipse over Seattle

As you may know, the sun, moon, and earth were in perfect alignment last night, resulting in a total lunar eclipse.  The first to occur on the winter solstice since 1638. 

You may have seen it more clearly from your vantage point in the world.  Here at our house, we had a few clouds that kept getting in the way.  But before they slipped in front of the moon and stayed, we snapped a few shots -- several were 30-second exposures -- that show the moon just before it was fully eclipsed.   It was amazing how reddish the moon became.  I hope you got to see it too.
