Lunar Eclipse on Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice full moon a few hours before the lunar eclipse the last eclipse on a winter solstice was Dec 21, 1638. Click on the image to view large on black.. -30 C and a 600mm manual focus lens was cold on the hand.
Thanks for your visit and comments. Last night I was lucky as it cleared up after a few cloudy days then clouded over after the show was done. The cool part was the lunar halo from earth as the moon was eclipsing but I didn't have a second camera to capture that and it was too cold to touch the lens that much. I was lucky and to see this once in a life time eclipse
