Lunar eclipse

Went out this morning to see the lunar eclipse. It was a bit of a mad dash as should have been getting ready for work, so guess what - yup I was late for work!!. I had my pyjamas on under big coat, boots, hat, scarf - not a good look!!!! According to the news 'The lunar ecclipse was coinciding with the winter solstice (shortest day). Apparently NASA reports that the last time these astronomical events took place together was 21 Dec 1638, and it won't happen again until at least 2094!!!! Not only was I dressed like a mad woman I also had the wrong lens on the camera and couldn't find the tripod, wrong settings..... so photos not good, but it was an amazing sight (the eclipse not me!)
