On the winter solstice this season (December 21, 2010) Most of the United States was treated to a total lunar eclipse. I even shot some VERY amateur video of it. It was a gorgeous display of nature, and I was thrilled to be able to stay up late that night to see it. In August of 1999 the Mir space station shot this incredible picture of the shadow of a lunar eclipse being cast upon the Earth.
