Nelson County, Virginia
We know exactly where Ann Strober was very early Tuesday morning on December 21st 2010. Behind the camera patiently waiting for a rare lunar eclipse that hasn’t coincided with the start of winter since 1638! WOW!
Thankfully a large area of cloudiness held off until Ann could grab these fantastic shots. Though the Winter Solstice doesn’t’ officially being until 6:38 PM EST Tuesday evening (11:38 Coordinated Universal Time UTC) it is a very rare event indeed for the two to happen on the same date. More on Winter Solstice here from timeanddate.com And lots more on the lunar eclipse here from The Washington Post.
Thanks Ann for either staying up late or getting up very, very early to grab these photos!
