Here are a few photos from the total lunar eclipse on the winter solstice a couple nights ago. Big marshmallowy trees look -really- awesome under moonlight.

It's striking how much darker the night gets when the Earth's shadow swipes across the moon, even in a surrounding of bright white snow.

During totality

The moon and a few straggling stars
