On a day which started with unusually strong winds, it ended with a more serene, yet equally unusual event.
On Monday night, 2010’s only lunar eclipse fell on the same day as the Winter Solstice—the first time that has happened since 1638. It was predicted prior to the eclipse that people in North and Central America would have the best view, and judging by the pics KKTV viewers have been sending in, the prediction was correct. Springs residents were able to view the entire eclipse.
For those viewers who stayed up late—the eclipse began at 11:30 p.m. and ended about three hours later—send us your pics! For those who couldn’t stay up, enjoy our slideshow, taken completely by KKTV viewers.
