12/27/2013 the darkest evening of the quincentennial

Tonight will be the darkest night in 500 years. 

Of course, it's almost new moon so the color you're going to get on the little slice of light isn't quite what they've got pictured.

In December 2010, while we were at Disney World, there was a lunar eclipse at the full moon on a totally clear night in Florida when we just happened to be staying at the Magic Kingdom until close at 3:00. This was the best shot I could get. (But consider that it's shot hand-held with just a 200mm focal length lens . . . it's not bad).
