Did anyone get to see the total lunar eclipse last night? We got lucky as the skies cleared up in time to catch it. The moon looked orange. It was so cool! I had to keep going in an out because it was so cold and windy last night, but it was worth it. I love astronomical events. :D

I saw it. At nights the moon is shining me right in the eye, as it's in front of my window, so...:mcat:

We had heavy cloud cover, with no sight of the moon.

Oh, man, I'm sorry. I honestly didn't think we'd get clear skies because the weather was so awful earlier in the day, with the snow and freezing rain. We lucked out. There will be another one in 2022, so here's hoping you have have clear skies for that one. :)

About the lunar eclipse: It was cold and I'd seen several lunar eclipses before, so I watched from a big window I have. It was still impressive! I started watching when it was about 75% in shadow; it'a always so cool to see it when it's just a dull red.
