solstice eclipse


O the moon. For the first time in nearly four centuries, a total eclipse occurred at the winter solstice. I am sure a druid or Wiccan could make something of this. We watched a bit from the roof in the howling wind, and more from the back bathroom, standing on the toilet with our heads out the window. It was quite a sight. My photographic skills were not up to the challenge, however.
    How many of you all were up at three in the acka emma?

I was! Seeing it was way cool. Super cold and windy on roof though.
