Lunar Eclipse in Toronto's Night Sky

The skies in Toronto were perfectly clear for viewing tonight's lunar eclipse, which just happened to coincide with the winter solstice. According to news sources, this hasn't happened for 372 years, and it will be another 84 years before it occurs again. I'm not an astronomy buff by any means, but I'm always interested in unusual and rare events. More than anything else, it was a chance to test my camera's zoom lens:

  1. Stunning Photos!! I heard that this was happening last night, I really would have loved to see it for myself, but I just couldn't for-the-life-of-me stay up until 3... Well I guess I will have to wait another 84 years ;)
