Did you watch the lunar eclipse last night? Our skies were off-and-on cloudy, so I tried to watch on the internet, but so many people also tried that, that I couldn't get the site. Oh, well. The lunar eclipse was the first on the Winter solstice, so I read, since the 1600s!
I took this picture on my way home yesterday. It was taken from Airport Rd., in Payson, AZ. Airport Rd. climbs higher than the town, and offers beautiful views of the Mogollan Rim, the Mazatzal mountains, Payson, and the sky. I took the picture with my Droid, and I set it to "zoom"- it didn't turn out very good quality, but it is so pretty that I wanted to share. The fuzziness of the moon is from hazy clouds, not from the camera shaking.
Happy Solstice, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays. I hope you can all find something to celebrate.
