One Magical Night in December, 2010

Last night was a night to stay up and enjoy (and capture) the show.

Soundtrack provided by the Paul Winter Consort and their iconic composition, "Icarus". It would not surprise me at all if the Consort was playing at the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York last night, as they do most Winter Solstices.


UPDATE Dec 22: I was close. I just checked the schedule, and the Winter Consort played the cathedral on the 16th, 17th, and 18th. But I also found a free music download while on the website!

    Thank you SO much. I can't believe I slept through that whole thing. It was beautiful! Good job capturing it.

  2. Well... I didn't exactly get the whole thing. There was another hour-plus, where the light would start to come back to the eastern side ;)

    Thanks! I saw the moon rise, stayed up to see the actual eclipse but too many clouds.

  4. Thanks Dan! It was way too cloudy here (NW Oregon) to see anything useful, plus the moon was behind all the big trees out the back. Now I feel like I've experienced it anyway.
