Did you see it? It was pretty awesome. There won't be another one until 2019.

I missed it, and I was bummed.
It was stormy last night (as it normally is when something wonderful is happening in the sky).

My girls and I stayed up. It was pretty interesting, and really nice how you could watch it happening so clearly. We had a beautiful sky for it, although it was a little cold here last night.

I stayed up until the moon started appearing again, and then I went to bed. Before the eclipse started, the moon was so bright. The eclipse itself was pretty amazing. I didn't see a huge amount of red, but more of a red tint. It was still thought provoking.

OP, where are you? Here in SoCal we have another on October 8, 2014, one next spring, and a fourth in September 2015. Then we won't have another until 2032.

I watched the moon turn rust (and totally 3-Dish--that was weird) but did not stay up to see it come back.

Here in Oregon it's usually too cloudy to see astronomical events but last night was crystal clear so I got to see it

Yeah, you're right. That's what I get for not completely investigating. We get several total eclipses over here.

Knowing there were several more coming up was the main reason I didn't force my kids to get up last night. Actually, I did make my son (9) get up, but he said it was too cold and went back inside. (It was about 60. ) This morning he was mad at me for not getting him up to see it!

My DS (age 14) actually woke me up to view the lunar eclipse. It was an impressive sight!

BigwigRabbit, I wanted to clarify I did not mean to correct you with my first post. Eclipses are regionally viewable, so it was quite possible that the next ever in YOUR area was in 2019. So that got me curious about where you live.

NO! PT, you've let me down! I count on you to keep me up to date on things because I don't pay attention to news online, and I don't have regular TV! This is where I hear about things!! Lol, j/k... I have no one to blame for my ignorance but myself (and a little bit of all of you! )

Thanks for the link, cats. dh sent my son a pic he snapped last night. Looked cool! I wonder why I didn't rate a pic???

No worries. I had the wrong info and that's bad. I live in the L.A. area, so I will be able to see the ones between now and 2019.

I tried

I woke up about 1 a.m., and tried to see out the window. I didn't have a good angle, so I tried the other window in our room. As I pulled up the blinds to see, the whole thing (pretty heavy, metal bar, etc.) came down on my head. Ouch. Not a nice surprise in the middle of the night.

My husband was sleeping in another room (I have a cold, and was probably snoring) so I went in to talk with him for a few minutes, just to make sure I wasn't acting weird (gave myself a concussion?) - he asked if I saw the eclipse. "Nope, but I saw stars."
