During last night's rare dual lunar eclipse and winter solstice occurrences, many in the Bay Area weren't able to see the moon's vanishing act due to the rainclouds ruining the show. Fortunately, we have some images of the total lunar peekaboo from around the world.
Last night's moon was notably bright since the 2010's sole total lunar eclipse coincided with winter solstice. "The last time this occurred was more than three centuries ago on Dec. 21, 1638," explains The Chronicle. "It will happen again on Dec. 21, 2094, according to U.S. Naval Observatory spokesman Geoff Chester."
