Russ Werth, Bowman, took photos of a total lunar eclipse late Monday evening into Tuesday morning from his deck. The retired school teacher said it was hard to hold the camera steady in freezing cold weather because of the "shiver factor." The total lunar eclipse coincided with winter solstice and the last time this occurred was on Dec. 21, 1638. It will happen again on Dec. 21, 2094, according to a U.S. Naval Observatory spokesman, but won't be visible from North America.
