Rare Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse

12.21.10 | Sarah Harnisch

 The lunar eclipse was last night! The celestial phenomenon only occurs during the winter solstice once every 350 years or so. The 3 and a half hour spectacle was visible from North and Central America where the skies were clear.
  Hanging high in the sky, the moon turned slowly from bright silver to a mud red disk. then it disappeared entirely. The last time this occurred was December 21st, 1638. It will happen again December 21st, 2094. If you missed it-- we have live video shot from the clear skies of Florida.
