Bummer

Looking a little more closely, it's just West coast U.S. thing (and West to Asia, Australia?)

For you Easterners, the moon will be set so you won't see it

OK, so this morning I took a chance on the eclipse here in Boulder, CO. I live on a ridge east of town, and I hoped the moon wouldn't set before full eclipse and the sunrise. I missed it by maybe 10 minutes, as the almost full eclipse dropped behind the mountains a bit before sunrise. Bummer. Did anyone get lucky and see the predicted orange moon-show?

Yup I did! on 12/10/2011 08:12:47 MST Print View

Though from the comfort of my computer. I had woken up early this morning to go out and see the eclipse. After hearing about it just before bed. Only after I woke up and fired on the computer did I read that us East coasters had no chance of seeing the event. So I did the next best thing I could think of and watched it live online. I do not think it was nearly as cool had I seen it in person

Watched the eclipse go total, then went inside to warm up. Went out 20 minutes later and the fog had arrived. A couple of neighbors were outside, but most didn't bother to get up.

I watched it through the window of the bus, on my way to work this morning. There are some very nice pictures over at spaceweather.com

Missed the ending due to fog, and the beginning due to sleep, but caught a lot of middle:
