Lunar Eclipse 2010

My wife and I got up at one in the morning this morning to view the lunar eclipse. This was an unusual lunar eclipse because it happened on the shortest day of the year, Dec. 21.  So, some are calling it the darkest day of the year.  In fact, some are calling it the darkest day in some 632 years since that is the last time this phenomenon happened.  Here is a picture I snapped of the eclipse. Brrrr, it was cold outside… about zero F.
