Early this morning the lunar eclipse, “blood moon” was visible in Tucson. This one was unique in that it converged with the winter solstice for the first time in 372 years (December 21, 1638). The Spanish Conquistadors had come and went about hundred years earlier. It would be 54 years before Jesuit missionary Eusebio Francisco Kino would arrive, but the Pima and Apache Indians would have seen it if the skies were clear.
The weather in Tucson is getting real nice, so come down and Discover Southern Arizona.
There are truly so many places to “discover” in Arizona, and Tucson is a great place to stay as your base. Directly south of Tucson is the Santa Cruz Valley. To the southeast is Cochise County. Each is rich in history, art, culture, beauty, and great wine.
Arizona is so beautiful and diverse. So, think about coming out West this winter to DiscoverArizona.org.
