Skywatch Winter Solstice

As I'm sure most of you are aware, we had a total eclipse of the moon on the winter solstice. Here in the Midwest, I was able to capture the beginning of the eclipse through a hazy sky. But clouds rolled in and obscured the total eclipse.

But I put out an all points bulletin to my peeps on the west coast and in the southwest asking them to take pictures if they could. They wouldn't have to be be up as late either, due to the time change. Luckily, my friend Bill in New Mexico was able to get a clear shot during totality! Here is his photo:

Oh wow! That is beautiful. We had wispy cloud cover and I missed it completely.
