Time lapse video of the solstice lunar eclipse

It hasn’t happened in 400 years but today a total eclipse of the moon coincided with the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This is the first time that this meeting has happened during the video age and William Castleman, an expert in photographic scientific subjects, caught the eclipse live on film.
