Hopefully you'll be able to see it.
Not me, overcast with a chance of a rain/snow mix tonight. :(

Hopefully the skies will be clear by me. I will be watching it.

Will be raining here, of all nights. The past 3 nights have been perfect for star gazing, now something truely awsome and rain.

overcast here in the az.
02-20-2008, 05:24 PM
Here too. Exploding satellites (probably wont see it), lunar eclipses. Damn weather...
02-20-2008, 05:40 PM
it's clearing up now in the az.
02-20-2008, 07:33 PM
I was looking forward to seeing this but its pretty cloudy outside so I may miss it. :(
02-20-2008, 07:39 PM
crystal clear here in Mn......2 degrees.....beautiful bright full moon looking out the living room.....should be quite the stellar eclipse
02-20-2008, 07:45 PM
Clear as a bell here. A nice clean country sky. Thanks for the heads up.

Cloudy here in Mississippi. So on to plan B, drinking some Crown and watching DSOTM. Wish I could see it, but plan B ain't bad either.:)
02-20-2008, 08:44 PM
is this going on now? i keep watching for it but nothing is happening.
02-20-2008, 08:45 PM
9pm central time I believe.
02-20-2008, 08:47 PM
All clear in southern PA. It has started and about 20% is covered.
02-20-2008, 08:58 PM
iddn't it beautiful? since i'm viewing it alone, can i live vicariously as though you all are watching it with me? almost like some joe dirt action...
02-20-2008, 09:00 PM
Charlotte checking in, clear skies. Someone took a bite out of the moon! :eek:
02-20-2008, 09:16 PM
Perfectly clear here too, looks pretty cool.
02-20-2008, 09:18 PM
Even better with this one will be a triangle formed with Saturn and the star Regulus and the moon at total eclipse...too bad so damn cold out 0 with 12 below windchill..just dont dare take the camera out...
02-20-2008, 09:39 PM

we are not alone.......

the only thing that would top this is if they ever shot down a spy satellite or something, but that would never happen. :p ;)

It's freakin' 7 degrees outside - I went out for 5 seconds just now, the western limb is still glowing, but it's in totality! :D

Can see it pretty well here. Got some decent pics, but I'm waiting for it to come back out a little (pics just look like a dim moon).
02-20-2008, 10:15 PM
Awesome here....can see it right out the window ....really dark already..missed the first stages. Anybody got a kickass telephoto lens ?
02-20-2008, 10:17 PM
clouds rolled in go figure, I can get a small glimps of it every few minutes through the thinner cloud layers blowing through.
02-20-2008, 10:24 PM
02-20-2008, 10:32 PM
I got to see it! YAY! Clouds went away for about an hour and a half and I got to see it! YAY!

My backyard 5 minutes ago......
Great pic, I tried but don't have a tripod to stabilize it during the 2" exposure...

Great pics Joe! I wanted to take my stepson out, but it's cloudy as hot brew after a munchkin poured it here. :rolleyes:

I stood out by the loading dock at work tonight and watched it for quite some time.
The coyotes on the property seemed to enjoy it, too, as they were pretty vocal tonight. Pretty eerie, watching the moon disapear and the howling ....
02-21-2008, 11:33 AM
It cleared up by me before the full eclipse so I got to see some of it. Very cool to watch.
02-21-2008, 01:54 PM
Sky was clear I was ready then I forgot, fell asleep in front of TV got up it was over,
02-21-2008, 04:21 PM
Nothing but thick clouds over my house last night. Very disappointing. I even practiced with with my camera on a tripod the night before... and all for nothing.

My backyard 5 minutes ago......
Cool; I always wanted to know what the DSOTM looked like :)
02-21-2008, 09:51 PM
Yup, I missed it. Pisses me off. 2 hours before the eclipse, the skys were clear as a bell and you could see the moon big as life. 30 minutes before the eclipse and the sky was covered. Couldnt even tell where the moon was. Figures.
