Rare event: Lunar eclipse, winter solstice dovetail

Last night the moon turned from silver to coppery red before being totally eclipsed by the Earth’s shadow – so I’m told. I couldn’t see it through the clouds above my house.

But it was a rare occasion. It was the first time since 1638 that the lunar eclipse coincided with the winter solstice and the official start of winter today. That won’t happen again until Dec. 21, 2094.
