    Anyone watching it?
    I'll be up on my building's roof with a blanket, a milk-crate and, most likely, a joint.
    Who's with me?

    I will be, if the clouds clear up here.

    Clouds seem clear, I work in a restaurant with big windows facing the moon.

    So I think I'm going to have many a moment tonight.

    Stuck at work until 11p Central, but I'll be taking a break when it's in full swing somewhere between 9 and 10 to go out into the subzero temps and take some pics, even brought my tripod with me today because I sure as hell won't have a steady hand.

    I definitely plan to check it out with a nice vodka tonic. Of course, I'm easily entertained, and would probably just be watching the moon anyway, even without an eclipse.

    I want to, but it's cloudy as hell with news of a possible storm.

    The Moon hates me.

    The cloud cover just burned off for me, with an hour and a half before the clearest view of the eclipse is supposed to come.

    I'll be watching it with my best girl. Anyone else got someone special to watch this with?

    No.

    Chances are, if the clouds part, I'll take pictures of it on my digital camera, including one of me with my mouth open around it ready to chomp down.

    Then I shall cry myself to sleep.

    Supposed to peak here at 10:53 EST.
    I'll probably go snap some picks off my back porch.
    It's way too godamn cold for the roof tonight, but I'm with you on the joint.

    Clouds abound over here. Saw a little bit of the moon. Caught a small glimpse of it's orange underbelly.

    Aw, clouds.

    Nice and clear, and a beautiful orange tint to it here in Georgia. Plus, the dimmed moon means that the stars are more visible than normal. Doubly pretty. I wish I'd not recently sworn of smokes, as I'd almost certainly enjoy the fuck out of one with my vodka tonic.

    I came home just in time to catch the last sliver of the moon disappearing into the darkness. Perfect timing, in my case.

    Pictures to be added in a couple hours, but the sky was crystal clear for me, and a lovely -8F. Unfortunately the moon wasn't huge/looming, and my camera zoom isn't super awesome, so not as killer as it could have been. Still, judging by the display on the back of my camera, it looks like some of them should come out pretty decent. I'm slightly depressed that I missed snapping a shot with a jet flying by the moon by a second or two :(

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Gorgeous in Portland.

    The sky is clear, but there is alot of light pollution locally. It also feels very cold for 2 degrees.

    Not a great shot, but here's a preview of when better photographers get on.
    the moon eclipsed

    And a shot of the Orion constellation at the same time
