Artist's Description

Once In A Blue Moon…

“Since Year 1, I can only find one previous instance of an eclipse matching the same calendar date as the solstice, and that is 1638 DEC 21,”
Geoff Chester, NASA in an interview for AOL news.

I had planned to photograph the whole event, but, unfortunately, clouds rolled in early, obscuring this once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.

These were shot at maximum mechanical zoom (72mm), f8 @ 1/125, ISO 80, handheld.

See MSNBC’s Photoblog for more info and pictures.
