Lunar eclipse, Dec 20, 2010

There will be a full lunar eclipse tonight -- a rare occurrence on the winter solstice. I photographed [the full lunar eclipse three years ago](/journal/2007/08/28/2007-full-lunar-eclipse-from-oakland-california/), which was an interesting photographic exercise because I didn't have access to a proper tripod that night.

I was planning on staying up to photograph tonight's lunar event, but it appears that San Francisco has other plans for those of us who live here...
