If you were pleasantly asleep last night from 1:30 to 4:30am then you missed the lunar eclipse. No worries because WeLoveDC’s Flickr photo poolNASA and Huffington Post have you covered with a robust recaps, videos and photos of the celestial event.

The total lunar eclipse coincided with the 2010 winter solstice, an combination of events that had not happened for 400 years and will not happen again until 2094.

  1. So there’s no confusion, the next total lunar eclipse around here will happen in April 2014, so there’s no need to wait until 2094. ;)

  3. @phil if you would have read the text right, the full lunar eclipse that happened earlier this morning only happens on winter solstice (shortest day of the year and the transition from fall to winter) once in 456 years or so
