Lunar eclipse

Today is Solstice, which I love, and this morning (at 1am) there was a full lunar eclipse visible from our house.
I set the alarm and Shel and I got up and went out to look at the moon. It was absolutely beautiful.
The sky was clear and the moon was bright and we stood there for about 2 minutes and then since the temperature was -27 degrees Celsius we went back inside and went to bed.
I am thrilled we were able to share the moment. It was awesome.

Fantastic! I'd intended to get a picture but it was overcast in my area. I'm jealous.

It was great weather for viewing in Yellowknife too. It was terrific wasn't it?
