RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Richmond experienced a total eclipse of the moon during the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

It is a total coincidence that it happened the same day as we mark the Winter Solstice, beginning at 6:38 p.m. Tuesday.

The photo is one that astronomer Ken Wilson took of the last lunar eclipse we experienced in 2008.
