1. too many clouds

They were pretty clouds, and you could see the glow of the moon behind them at times, but it was impossible to see the eclipse.

2. Overcast.

 

Plus, had to go to bed early because I need to get up early on Mondays.

3. I watched until it was fully in shadow. I could see a red glow

but too many city lights for it to be very bright.

5. I could see it peeking through the clouds.

I watched until it disappeared, but didn't see any red glow. Too bad we didn't have the cloudless sky of the previous night.

8. ayup. beautiful. stayed about 10 minutes past totality.

 

I just wish it had been earlier in the evening. I would have been able to stay outside for the whole thing and the moon was much bigger when it was just over the horizon at 8pm or so than it was 2 hours later!

9. Yup, and I watched it set this morning just as the sun was rising.

Very cool.

10. Clouds, rain, ick...

This neck of the woods was socked in solid by rain clouds all day and night, probably all of today & tomorrow too.

Been a damn wet September, feels like living in a swamp.

11. Had to walk a couple kilometers.

Highrise buildings wouldn't get out of my way. During the few breaks in the clouds, the moon was still a silver dollar. Then the cloud cover closed ranks.

12. I blame Pope Francis

Two days where I stood for about 12-14 hours which also includes about 10 miles of walking.

I got home around 8:30 last night and crashed.

Totally forgot about it but I'm going to be around for the next one!!

14. Nope.

Thought about it for a second. Then decided against it. If my right-wing neighbors saw me out in the street at night, looking skyward, they probably would have thought I was beaming in alien terrorists and would have shot me.

17. A beautiful sight here in Fort Lauderdale...

Clear skies, warm night.
I should have gone down to the beach.

19. I would suspect that there will be astronomical events in the coming years

that will make The Fucking Moon eclipse seem like nothing at all. And thus, I don't give a shit if I have to "wait" to see the next one

Here's a little more on that explanation, too

20. If a total of a minute through the entire time counts.

Saw a fleeting glimpse of pink twice during totality. Several longer looks as it was leading up to it.

21. Saw it. Loved it.

Beautiful clear skies. The blood moon phase was dim and a little hard to see while near the horizon. As the moon rose, it got brighter and whiter. The last time I looked, the eclipse was nearly over, with just a small crescent missing from the upper left portion of the lunar disc.

Cool stuff...

22. Clouds in the way. Totally overcast, not even a glow.

But we got some rain last night late and needed it, so that was good.

23. Looked like the Man in the Moon had a sunburn.

We had many clouds but there were enough clear patches to see it in small doses.

Like many a youtube video and other content it was not available in my area.

26. My balcony faces west and I didn't feel like going outside.

 

I've seen enough phenomena, I could miss this one
