    I saw it earlier, but I haven't seen it since. Clouds came over.

    Blocked by clouds and a house. Drat.

    Clouds now - that was to be my only moon glimpse.

    Saw this thread, walked outside with my roommate.

    "You see the moon, dude?"

    "...no?"

    "Yeah, lunar eclipse is going on, I guess."

    "That'd be why we can't see it then."

    Then it started hide and seek with us, few clouds in the way. Still, very pretty.

    Crystal clear here, was cool to watch.

    Crystal clear in Cambridge also. Just watched it with some friends after some bourbon and ginger snaps.

    In a strange twist, it was clear here in Port Townsend, Washington:

    Oh wow, Stew, that's an amazing picture. You take that yourself?

    I saw it here and as we had rain earlier - damn spectacular. Not very reddish here though.

    Saw it, took pictures, they were dreadful.

    Fortunately, at least 75% of the internet was also watching and taking pictures, so it's been documented thoroughly. 4chan's /p/ board actually has a few nice shots.

    I took some much much closer in shots than this one, but they didn't turn out very interestingly. I don't possess the gear to have done something close in enough to be awesome.
    Here's the moon over the frozen river though, and I'm really glad to see what others captured.
    It was nice out if a bit cold.

    Bleh, tons of noise at better resolutions, but these ones didn't turn out too bad:

    I don't think the eclipse itself was visible where I am, but the moon is huge and a gorgeous blood-orange color right now. very nice.

    Great shots, Stew and Vanessa.

    Thanks to everyone who posted photos! :)

    Agreed! I, in a vast blaze of foresight, forgot to bring my camera.
    Whitechapel FTW!

    Skies cleared here in southeast Pennsylvania just in time to see the whole thing. I tried to take pictures, but either I or my camera was in no way good enough to do so. Thanks for the photos!

    @Artemis: Yep, thankee kindly.

    Lots of pretty pictures going round. Nice!

    Ironicly, one of the first days this year, which wasn't sub zero, was the night of the eclipse. Walking through town was like Victorian London.
    Some nice photo oppertunities, but not having my camera on me, and obscuring fog would have made it difficult.
    That said, its not hard to take a pleasing photo of the Cathederal. Like West Pier in Brighton, it begs to be pictured.
