Greetings and Best Wishes for the New Year!

This eclipse was a thrill to observe.  The night was magical.  We have begun the transformation, which sends chills through my body.

This eclipse is the first one I have been able to see since I returned from the space-less-ness of blindness and regained my vision.  It made it an even more special event for me. The last winter solstice eclipse was in the 1600’s. And before that, it was more than 2 thousand years ago.

Even with the icy Canadian night,  I scooted in and out, making ooo-ing and ah-ing sounds.   I was trying to hold my breath while snapping photos to avoid hazy images.  The full moon slid into a coppery red colour as it went into the shadow of the earth and brightened as it went back again into the glow of the sun.

The orbs joined in and appeared in many of the photos.  Here is a selection,  enjoy!
