    I was up at 12:30am constantly hoping the clouds would clear up. Now I'm going to have to wait 372 years. :eek2:

    Well, with the advances in medical science and/or cryogenics, you might get a shot.

    Actually, that isn't true. There are two next year, one will be best viewed from Madagascar or more precisely, the Indian Ocean, and the other one from Australia (or South Eastern Pacific Ocean). They are in June and December respectively.

    But will the December one be on the Winter Solstice? I believe that's what makes this one so rare.

    I thought the next winter solstice one was in 2092? Anyways ... we had a few inches of snow overnight so the sky was overcast and others got to enjoy this eclipse. (I have photos from one in 2008.)

    Thanks for the pics. . . was overcast here but I did notice the 'glow' of the full moon and the clouds was quite reduced.

    Yesterday they said it was the first lunar eclipse on the winter solstice in 456 years and no one had calculated the next one yet.

    Technically, it wasn't on (during) the Winter Solstice either. :) The Winter Solstice is in a few more hours actually. The eclipse happened already...

    I guess if you said "the day of" the Winter Solstice, I'd accept that. :p :)

    "Coincided," I can accept that wording too, "at the same time" not so much. :D
