Video of the Day: Last Night’s Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse


As our friends at point out, yesterday was the darkest day in 372 years(!), which made last night’s lunar eclipse extremely special. And still, we couldn’t make ourselves leave the warm comfort of our beds to check it out once 2:40 am rolled around. Luckily, a nice fellow down in Gainsville, Florida, named William Castleman shot a beautiful time lapse video that’s the next best thing — or arguably even better, as we’re not tired right now and it has a soundtrack. Enjoy!
