on the solstice eclipse (12/21)

above Orion

the Moon glows dull burnt sienna in a cold crisp night

wisps of moisture as thin clouds, almost mistaken for the Milky Way

a rare night on a special day, theĀ first of Winter

our entire family and a few friends gathered to watch the spectacle in the wee hours

it has been centuries since this could last be seen

our children, if they live very long, but more likely our grandchildren, could see this the next time
