    Was cool to watch it slowly get a shadow across it.

    It is hanging there in the sky with a low red glow. Really interesting.

    Well, the clouds parted. I got to see about 80% eclipse. If I had know the sky had cleared, could have seen it all perhaps.
    have to catch it next time in 2030. I'll be 91, if I make it, then.
    I've only seen one total eclipse of the sun, in my life, and a couple partial eclipses, and a couple partial eclipses, of the moon.

    Too much cloud cover southern Michigan to see it unfortunately. We checked outside a few times last night, but no luck.

    Yes. I took my wife and daughter to a ridge to watch it. It was already mostly eclipsed at moon rise here in Wa. We left for home once it was back to about 50% eclipsed. Then it was high enough for us to see above the hills and trees around our house.

    As many of the others, it was cloudy here in Tennessee. Stayed up for a while hoping to get to see the Moon to no avail!
    Does anyone here have any pictures of it?

    Similar experience here as SSGN_Doc had. The eclipse began before moonrise in the Western USA and even before dark so we had to wait for it then it went total pretty quick. We did go out often to check, I always have to watch an eclipse! The sky was clear so overall we were lucky in Boise.

    I live out in cow country and had a great view from my upper yard.
    These pics were with my friends Nikon D3200 and my Sigma 170-500 f5.6 lense at 1 to 4 seconds ( I have a string of them)

    Glad I got to see it and get some shots.
    I was lucky to have caught the full eclipse of the sun back in the 70's from Goldendale Washington. That was spectacular. This was 'ok'

    The clouds broke for several minutes in nw Ohio, just long enough to catch it with my camcorder. The eclipse was just starting to pull away, so I could see the contrast of white and red.

    See Cindy, you're not the only dork. :cool:
