Lunar-tic behavior...

...as a rare occurrence occurs in the wee hours of Monday Night and Tuesday morning: The winter solstice coincides with a total eclipse of the Moon for the first time in 456 years. Wiccans everywhere have perked up their ears....

All y'all can get the details here.

It has been a few years since the last eclipse I (or anyone else) saw....


Not such a swell shot, but I was making do with the equipment I had.

The next regular eclipse will occur sometime in 2014 if I remember correctly. Maybe I'll have a camera, lens and tripod capable of delivering quality moon-photos by then!

That doesn't mean I won't give it another try Monday night. Not promising any shots will appear here...the delete key may get to 'em before you do!

I plan on sleeping through the event. 3:30ish A.M. If I plan on getting up for it I won't...so I'm going the opposite route.

Never know what may happen.

I dunno who you could ask about rescheduling the eclipse, but it might be worth a try....

Inconvenient hour for such a thing, I must say!
