21.12.10

I spent the night down at the beach watching the once in 400 year summer solstice lunar eclipse, as it had been that long since the "southern summer and northern hemispehere's winter solstice had occurred simultaneously in almost four centuries. The last time this occurred was in 1638." Source. There were a few families down there with binoculars and telescopes. Down here we only got to witness a partial eclipse,and the moon wasn't s red as further up north but it was till really cool.
