That beautiful lunar eclipse

As it happens, here in Payson at 01:15 am on the morning of Tuesday, 21st December, low broken cloud was obscuring the moon much of the time.  But nonetheless the pale outline of the darkened moon was visible, sitting above the constellation of Orion.  Very, very mystical.

Here’s what it looked like without the cloud, thanks to a Google search for images.

And a late update, thanks to Pete N (via Facebook) who spotted this wonderful video recently placed on YouTube.

which then highlighted this video taken by the Kurdistan Planetarium – these are amazing examples of the power of our new virtual world in sharing images across so many peoples.
