(Newser) – Those of you who hit the hay early last night missed a show not to be seen on the winter solstice for another 84 years: The moon, hanging high in the sky, turned reddish and went dark for 72 minutes as the Earth eclipsed it, reports the AP. Click through the gallery for pictures from various vantage points on planet Earth, or check out a time-lapse video of the eclipse.
