Yep.

Watching it myself, with binoculars and a camera.

I missed the last one.

Wanted to see this one.

One of my employees just mentioned it. How long is it supposed to last?

I just went out and looked at it, kind of cool. I happened to have my camera in the car but don't have my tripod.  Sad I tried to balance my camera on my car but no luck. I guess I don't have the steady hand for a 5 second shutter speed.

Shit...they weren't kidding! Australia was the place to be tonight!

Watched it up until now here in Olympia...gotta love that 3D effect you get from the moon during a lunar eclipse. Awesome!

It's pretty much almost a dark spot in the sky in the midwest. If anyone has a good camera, get out there, quick.

I watched from the beginning of the eclipse (about 1:50 PDT). Totality was reached around 2:45 PDT, but I didn't stick around outside to watch the whole thing, so I came inside about 3:30 or so. For some reason, the moon was a dull orange with the naked eye, but more gray in the binoculars. Anyway, it was certainly more impressive than the last one I saw. We have perfectly clear skies here (SJC) tonight, but for the one earlier this year I was in Boston and it was mostly cloudy.

Saw it at IAH tonight while working. I've seen them before, but still neat to watch


Recovery is a journey, not a destination. Enjoy the trip.

They average twice a year, every 6 months, again on Average.

Last one happened in March, so 5 months later, now August, closer to Sep, making it near 6 months.

We should be done with them for 2007.

Thanks for the pics QFFlyer, they're awesome. I could kick myself because I was up and didn't even know this was going on. I would have loved to see it in person.

Was up at 0300 Alaska time. Didn't actually realize exactly what was up until I head it on CNN . . . very cool.

We had no clouds up here last night - well, in this part of Alaska anyway - so it was a great view.
