No Eclipse This Year!

Early Tuesday morning I was standing out in the street here in Quincy, craning my neck and regarding with some annoyance a featureless overcast sky. I had hoped to see and photograph the total lunar eclipse, the first one in a long time to occur on the Winter Solstice.

Oh, well, at least I had a good view of the last such celestial event back in 2008!

I consoled myself by looking (with a bit of envy) at photos taken from more favored locations. You can see a nice selection here:

    Larry, don’t worry. Lunar eclipses are rather common so just stick around. The total solar eclipse is the rare gem.
