It is so exciting to be around for these great celestial events. And on the same day as the summer solstice.

This really is exciting as the last such spectacle happened nearly 800 years ago. Thanks for your explanations.

ah the Winter Solstice – a time for Druids to frolic at Stonehenge , sadly instead of clear frosty night and a sharp dawn , it was soggy rain.
Much rather be at Londolozi where the sky is clear, the weather warm and you can enjoy this rare event under African Sky

We are looking forward to see it tonight as our balcony faces south west!! Very excited to see this phenomenon !! As always thank you all for the wonderful pictures and interesting info! Hou have certainly brightened our days as we slowly get closer to the Presidential Inauguration ! Take safe and hopefully the new virus strain is not near Londolozi. Merry Christmas ! Victoria

Although we had Tule Fog this morning and evening, I barely managed to see the planets tonight, just to the right and down from the moon – not totally clear but there nevertheless! Happy viewing to you!!
