For several days, clear skies at 69˚40’N 18˚56’E have made it possible to watch this winter’s second full moon circulating above the horizon, not setting at all. Today, winter solstice, the darkest day of the year, coincided with a total lunar eclipse, something which hasn’t occurred since 1638. Next time it might be watched in 2094.
