So last night there was a full lunar eclipse of the full moon on the winter solstice for the first time since AD 1638, which must mean something, right? I was quite excited heading home from work last night, because there was no rain and the sky was relatively clear. I planned to wake up at 4am or so to see it.

Then I slept through it, and didn’t remember until walking out to meet my lift in to work at 6:25am, when the moon was shining down on me looking normal again. D’oh! That must mean something too. It’s funny though, NASA says the peak of the eclipse would have been only 10min before I went out. Funny that it wasn’t still partially red.

Here’s a photo from the CBC at any rate:
