In Case You Missed It: Lunar Eclipse Photos

Last night, the universe decided to gift humans with an early Christmas present: a total lunar eclipse. This all came the morning of the Winter Solstice, the day of the year with the fewest hours of daylight for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. 

Sure, lunar eclipses happen every year. But according to the Washington Post, the last time a total lunar eclipse coincided with the Winter Solstice was in 1638.

We dragged our butts out of bed to witness this spectacle but were too bleary-eyed to pull out a camera.

Thankfully our sister paper the Dallas Observer thought ahead. After the jump, check out some fantastic photos from the early-morning eclipse. 

We had clear skies last night (another gift from the sky). These photos were taken in Dallas, Texas, and despite the thin clouds they had, they showcase the eclipse perfectly.
