Lunar eclipse



Were any of you lucky enough to catch last night's beautiful and rare lunar eclipse?  I wanted to see it so bad.  I was able to stay up late to watch it but unfortunately ole man winter interfered with the view here in Chicago.  I've been having so much fun looking through photos and watching videos of it and it seems that nearly all of my Facebook friends were able to watch it (jealous).

For some really great shots, check out NASA's Flickr group photos, they're pretty unbelievable.

I totally didn't even know there was going to be a lunar eclipse. I would have tried to wake up during it. Damn. Thanks for the link to those photos!

I saw some of it! Amazing amazing. There was quite a bit of cloud coverage but I'm glad to see what I did.

I ran outside around 1am to see it partially covered. I think the pictures seem cooler than what it looked like in person, though - oddly enough.

Those photos are amazing! Sadly, I was nursing my sick stinker, and got totally distracted when I was supposed to be looking up at the sky!

I wanted to see it too...however, it was terribly foggy here in southern Italy.
