Default Who Saw the Eclipse?

I did, apart from some periods when clouds covered it.

The reddish-brown phase was very dark. I wonder how much was due to pollution? But it was very impressive, even here in a big city.

Pretty cloudy here in Cowtown last night and I'm no longer much of a nightowl. I chose to get my zzzzzzzzz's instead. Saw some pics this morning and it looked pretty spectacular.

I got to see about the first 20 minutes of it, and then the clouds rolled in. Still kind of neat.

I got up around 2:30 for my usual trip to the head and remembered the eclipse-so I walked outside and killed two birds with one stone. Would have seen it better if I had my glasses on.

Didn't look reddish or any other color here except very dark. I don't remember seeing one this dark and colorless before.

Snow here, too. I've got some gauges, buildings across the way. I rate the snowfall by my ability to see them off in the distance. It was a "forget it" kind of snow. I couldn't even see the bridge .4 miles away! That's what you call accumulating snow. Started before midnight, still doing it this morning. No seeing the moon then, or the sun now.

Missed it; thick cloud and falling water blocked everything here in SoCal. I'll catch the next one.

Clear-and cold-here in Central NJ. I saw no reddishness, just darkness.

I woke up 1:40 and went out and looked. It was about 1/3 covered. I didn't see the red that I suppose to see. Went back out about 4 and it was over. I am glad I saw it.

I did here in NE Floriduh.

Went out about 2:00, lit a fire in the firepit, opened a bottle of good wine, lit a cigar, pulled up a comfy recliner and watched show until about 4:30.

Beautiful, clear cool night without a breath of wind. Quite enjoyable and a spectacle that won't be repeated in my lifetime. I would have been sorry to miss it.

Over here in Tokyo, I didn't even try, assuming that it could not be seen here. I read that the best place to be was North Carolina, so I am a little surprised that you folks in Texas could see it. I don't know much about eclipses, but thought they were pretty local in effect.

Obviously you are thinking about solar eclipses.
For a lunar eclipse, the earth is casting a shadow on the moon, and if you can see the moon while the shadow is on it, you are seeing the eclipse.

The view from OK was spectacular, as I had only scattered clouds.

Time to resurrect this old thread!

It is about 11:40 PM Arizona time and we appear to be about 75% of the way to totality.

Barefooted on the front patio here just north of Tucson.

My wife says it will be another 15 minutes until totality.

We have a telescope pointed at it making it more impressive than I remember from my childhood in the upper Midwest.

Yeah!

Nice redish orange hue to the light and almost uniform.

Hmm . . . might have to put together some moon punch in celebration.

That is what the ancients would have done, right?

Well . . . this old guy needs to hang it up for the evening, if I expect to be cheerful at our early morning rifle shooting tomorrow. Er, uhm make that "this morning" and "later today".

I still remember my father telling me, "Eventually, you will want to go to bed without anyone insisting."

At age eight, I didn't completely believe him. He was right. As usual.

I'm with you Caj on this one...Every once in a while it's worth having to get up in the middle of the night...

Well I did use the indoor facilities though.

You have my sympathies, sir!

I spent my childhood in South Dakota and Iowa. My father often commented that we had two seasons, Winter and July.

As an adult, my homes were in "The Great Northeast", mostly Pennsylvania, Long Island, and southern Zoo Jersey. My favorite weather observation was that I would happily trade the month of February for a second July.

When we moved here to Tucson, I got my wish!

Cloudy here, so I didn't bother to go outside, although I was up on account of may bladder. The setting full moon was big and red, though, about half past six.

Watched it, dark. I have seen a few and always enjoy it. Not cloudy at all in this Cowtown, clear and chilly, great watching conditions.

Watched it here but it was cloudy and raining. Nice and big I didn't see Mars though those guys on NASA TV need to get their stuff together.

Would have been nice to get the telescope out to see Mars if it wasn't raining.

Too cloudy to see in my neck of the woods. Heavy rain came at 8am and dropped one inch by 10am.
But the good news is that there will be three more "Blood Moons" in the next two years, one every six months.

I saw it here in Northern California during different time phases. At 11:30 it was half covered, 12:05 almost fully covered, 12:45 was fully covered with the lower half reddish and the upper dark brown.
Overall, pretty cool sight.

At 1 am here it was just a regular moon.
At 4 am it was looking purple with the bottom half starting to
go white again.
I slept through the rest of it.

A bit of cloud cover here in VA. Managed to catch a few glimpses of it and was quite impressive. Was worth waking up for, imo.

Default Lunar Eclips from SE WI!

I SAW IT I SAW IT I SAW IT! The last TWO that were supposed to be visible here were totally obscured by clouds. Had the camera ready, put on the parka (-7C!), hand warmers in the pockets and cocoa on the stove.
BUT, both, count 'em BOTH camera batteries died before I could get the entire return.
Still, 41 pix isn't bad.
Nikon D7100, Nikkor 18-300 zoom, most at about 1/6 seconds at f5.6 to 1 second at f5.6, 300mm.

Default Count me in the lucky few.

I got to see part of it while hooking my tractor up to a trailer this AM. It was pretty chilly but clear as a bell out here in Iowa.

Exactly what I saw on the west coast. Grey, not red or orange. Pollution? Or possibly just because it was cloudy.

The color may be a function of your angle of view. From: 'Blood Moons' Explained: What Causes a Lunar Eclipse Tetrad? (Infographic) | Space.com

Four Blood Moons: A Tetrad Of Lunar Eclipses Explained | Video

A sequence of four total lunar eclipses including no partial eclipses is called a tetrad. In 2014-2015, four lunar eclipses will occur. This sequence features eclipses on April 15, 2014; Oct. 8, 2014; April 4, 2015 and Sept. 28, 2015.

Earth's shadow is red at the edges for the same reason a sunset is red: When sunlight is scattered by passing through Earth's atmosphere, the other colors of the spectrum are removed.
