A total lunar eclipse took place on December 19, 1964.[1] The eclipse afforded astrophysicist J. M. Saari the opportunity to make infrared pyrometric scans of the lunar surface with improved equipment, following up on Richard W. Shorthill's discovery of "hot spots" in the Tycho carter during the March 13, 1960 eclipse. [2]
