Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse in Time Lapse Video

When was the last time the lunar eclipse and win­ter sol­stice coin­cid­ed? The U.S. Naval Obser­va­to­ry says 1638; Starhawk, a promi­nent Wic­can, puts it at 1544. Need­less to say, these coin­cid­ing events are a rar­i­ty. So, in case you missed it, we have a nice time lapse video shot by William Castle­man in Gainesville, Flori­da. Castel­man also pro­duced this fine gem: The Milky Way Over Texas.
