Here in Cambridge - the People's Republik - it is awesome.

Agreed. Just saw the moon go into the shadows and saw a dim pink glow.

It's partly partly here in the Southlands, but I got a glimpse of it before it went back behind the clouds...looks good! (Now I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop...)

Awesome here in DC, dark red, shading a bit brighter to the south. But it's getting cloudy. And COLD!

thanks for the pics!

Thanks to all who took the time to offer the time ... uh, thanks to all that posted a key to the time conversion ... no, that sounds like I'm getting advice from a Galifreyan in his Tardis. Oh well, thanks folks. It got too cold to stay out and watch it.

On a less series note, Tom Baker was my fav Doctor. Who was your fav? Also, do you have a favorite episode?

I have to admit, Tom was my favorite too, because I had a crush on him!
I actually am not really into sci-fi, only because it doesn't leave alot to the imagination. That may sound weird, but I need stories to be not so....I can't think of the word. Sci-fi is to planned. Everything is A to B to C....analytical? And on TV, it is even more so.
So, the stories didn't really catch me as much. Plus, by the time I saw it on repeats in the 80's, I was a teenager already.

I saw The moon here; before during and after eclipse right next to the Atlantic on a clear night. I think it was prettier before and after personally. I noticed it was nice to have the moonlight back afterwards.

Hoping to see the eclipse here!

Where?

I saw it vividly around 8:59 pm last night (11/08/03) coming up my driveway heading due east, it was directly overhead---a bronze-hued moon with a reversed crescent---very cool.

Yep, I saw it as well here in Michigan. I didn't see the full eclipse thanks to a cloud passing over it, but I saw it up until that point. It was really cool.
