Down here in Australia, the southern states had a bit of cloud cover until around 9.40pm, when patchiness gave way to a clear sky. Around 290km west of here in Warranambool (a large sea-side town), photographers were out in force and submitted some to the media. The northern half of the state had clear skies all night so waiting to hear of a photographer who made a pilgrimage to a large granite outcrop to photograph it.
My understanding is that it's the first time in 400 years that a total lunar eclipse has coincided with the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the southern hemisphere (ah, we're still waiting for summer!!!).
