Lunar eclipse, Winter solstice and minus 14 celsius.

On a bitterly cold morning I stood on the beacon to watch the lunar eclipse which began soon after half past six. A slow darkening on the left hand side of the moon gave way to beautiful red shadow which slowly spread left to rightacross the moon. Eventually the moon was covered by the earth’s shadow. Dawn was approaching and Redwings and Fieldfares were calling in a nearby holly bush as they set out to survive yet another hard winter’s day.
