The event is not expected to recur for another 200 years

Winter solstice on a frosty winter morning held the promise of some beautiful shots. The moon having moved out of sight of Wexford town hours before it was to officially set. Don’t be disappointed Elaine Larkin of Webcontent.ie captured the lunar eclipse ‘moments’ on the other side of the county, Lunar Eclipse 21 December 2010. Below find a few shots of the winter solstice sunrise over Wexford Harbour & then some.

The clouds on the horizon are on fire. An interesting contrast to the ice on land & prelude for the weather to come

The Next full Lunar eclipse is due in five years, I think I’ll head towards New Ross for that one

The boardwalk was white and crunchy from the morning frost.  Following my return to the studio I’d read tweet after tweet of snow in Gorey, Courtown, BallyGarret & not a hint of snow in Wexford town until 5 to 10 am a few flakes floated around.

I havn’t seen this method of Snow grip used since the 80’s,  this is a recent & excellent video. Merry Christmas and stay safe.
