This year's lunar eclipse coincided with the winter solstice, an event that has not taken place in over 400 years, and will not happen again until 2094.

Shot in Dallas over a span of more than four hours (and over 2600 photographs in a timelapse sequence), this video shows the path of Earth's natural satellite being covered by our planet's shadow as it passes between the sun and the moon. Due to cloudy conditions, excessive softening of the moon is apparent at the beginning and the end of the video, during the moon's brightest times. This created an ethereal color cast on the surface of the Earth and visible by the naked eye.

Shot with a Canon EOS 7D at 11mm, f/4.0, 320 ISO, 3".
