The last time a total lunar eclipse coincided with the Winter Solstice was 372 years ago. This is the second time this has happened in the Common Era. Unfortunately, it was much too overcast for me to see the total eclipse. I caught a few brief glimpses as the partial eclipse began, with roughly a quarter of the moon in eclipse, and then with half in shadow.
