DPP Day 20 {Total Lunar Eclipse}

Tonight was the first total lunar eclipse that coincided with the winter solstice (the longest night of the year) since 1638. We stayed up late to watch it, and it was really interesting. First, a shadow crept over the moon. Then when it was fully in the shadow, it turned a bright orange rust color.
