Eclipsed Yule Moon

The last cosmic triple play of a full moon at total eclipse on Winter Solstice occurred 372 years ago on Dec. 21, 1638. The next one won’t occur until the end of this century in 2094, well after this writer has turned to dust.

Clear skies and near pristine air quality in this neck of the woods gave us a perfect view of this magnificent lunar eclipse as seen below from the back yard at the Doak House around 12:20:

We’re hoping the Doak House will be around to witness the next one…
