    Just a reminder for everyone. Tomorrow at 4:51 EDT. Unfortunately if you're in Africa, the Middle East, or Europe, you won't see it. If you live in North America, West Coasters will have the best view. East Coasters have about a half hour before the sun rises.

    Great.

    I'm a North American west coaster who's expecting clear skies tonight. I'll be getting up early to watch.

    Hrm...that's right around my usual bedtime. Unfortunately, I'm stuck in the light-polluted cesspool that is Dallas tonight. I was looking forward to seeing this celestial event, too, dammit. Guess I'll have to seek elsewhere for a good view of heavenly bodies...

    Haha, I got up 20 minutes before my usual alarm time to watch it.

    I got to see the full moon go all the way to total eclipse, then the clouds moved in and I couldnt' see anything.

    I'm in Oregon and just went to look again. It is far and high up in the sky, but you can still see it well. It's a darkish red. Very pretty.
