    Oh, Hiker - you are soooooo lucky!! I'm one that is drawn (perhaps obsessed) with celestial happenings. I've awakened at 3 AM to watch various meteor showers. Thorn & I have taken weekend trips to mountains, in order to see these things without interference from city lights. I was VERY excited when I heard the East Coast was going to see it as a full lunar eclipse :woohoo Thorn even pumped himself up with coffee late in the day, so he could stay up with me.

    But, alas - our skies were completely cloudy last night, with freezing rain & sleet falling. I saw nothing.

    But I'm happy for those of you who DID see it!
    I even heard on the news today that if you had a relatively good telecope, Saturn's rings were visible :whoa

    I was at the Gym and rode the bike home so Stopped and watched part of it
    and it was about half covered when I got home and I completely forgot
    to get out my camera and set it up, It has a 850 power telephoto lens with
    a doubler and I got some great shots of Halebop with it. We lived in the country at that time so no trucks driving by to disturb the camera on a tripod with a remote shutter
    mechanism. Here I live to close to a federal highway to use that much power
    as the least vibration will ruin it.
    The moon did disappear for a very short time then turned orange as promised

    No such luck here in Sweden. It's been cloudy and raining all day/night. I remember seeing a lunar eclipse about ten years ago, and it's something I shall never forget. I can certainly see how ancient societies considered the blood red eclipsed moon a bad omen.
