Who is planning to watch the blood moon lunar eclipse tonight?
I'm going to try and watch it -3AM EST- but we have a very cloudy sky tonight, so not sure if the view will be much. Anyone else going to try and see it?
I'm going to try if the clouds stay away and I can stay awake.
I am watching right now... The left side has just a wisp of darkness, like dark fog, not solid. The sky is completely clear.
Saturday: 85 degrees sunny
Sunday: huge rain and small tornadoes
Monday morning: 30 degrees, snow ice storm
Monday night: sky is clear snow is gone.
1AM: The moon is still white. Wisp of dark fog on left side
1:05 : half light pinkish beige
1:10: three quarters color with a black bite out of the left side.
This is quite beautiful, have to go outside.
1:15AM PDT The ending is all I have seen. No red color. Only a little more than a sliver of earth's shadow covering the full moon. Still looks cool.
I watched it for 2 hours, from 12:35 AM 'til 2:30 AM CST. There was definitely an eclipse, but red? No. There was no obvious color. Not orange, yellow, pink, red, or anything of the sort. Looked kind of muddy and it was barely visible during the full eclipse, such as it was. Have no idea where the 'blood red' description comes from. I didn't see it and I was sitting outside in the cold (36 degrees F.) just to watch it. There were no clouds. A little disappointing after the big build up.
bethperry....I was sitting on the porch writing on my laptop, so I watched pretty much the whole process, 12:30 am to 3: 45 am, from clear moon to Bloodmoon , AWESOME...

It's these simple things in Life that I cherish...
