Nice pics BA.
I caught a nice glimpse of it while I was taking my trash out tonight. I think it was around 7:30/8pm EST. Not as cool as a solar eclipse, but on a nice clear crisp night like that I am having tonight it looks pretty good.

I agree a solar eclipse is much cooler. The next one happens in February of next year...................but it will be in South Africa.
Actually there is a solar eclipse this month- Nov 24th. It will however only be visible from the Southern hemisphere(good for me ) The eclipse is actually over Antarctica- totality observable from Wilkes Island at 22:49:17 UT- duration just under 2 mins.

I was working AA flight 1270 from SJU to EWR when the eclispe happened. The F/O wanted a break so the CPT called me up to the cockpit and let me sit in the F/O's seat to watch it. It was really awesome. The sky was so clear up there that you could see all the stars. When I first looked at it it was about 1/2-way covered and I watched until it was totally darkened. It was really cool staring out the window because of how clear it was. It felt like being on a spaceship instead of an A300.
