Full lunar eclipse on the solstice!

The full lunar eclipse from Virginia, U.S.A.

Last night in the wee small hours, if the sky was clear and you lived in one of the right places, you could see the Moon move into the Earth’s shadow and become a deep brick red, illuminated only by light that refracts around the Earth.

NASA has provided a map as well as the image above.
