Frustrating. It's always got to be cloudy. Darn.

We missed the auroras last week

No kidding. It's rare to get a clear night in Michigan this time of year.

Too much cloud cover here in northern CA. But, here's a pic from the last one earlier this summer:

I HATE CLOUDS

I've looked at clouds from both sides now...

It clear here (Connecticut). It's a little over half obscured. The dark area is darker than I expected.

Dubuque, Iowa: clear and cold, perfect viewing weather. About 3/5 eclipsed at 6:15 CST. Even a set of cheap binoculars will enhance the view quite a bit.

Clear as a bell and high as a kite in Richmond VA. Going out to the deck now.

See you on the dark side of the moon!

...(not really high, just a wee cab/sav as a matter of fact).

P.S. I love your home page, looks like you live in the boonies too.

Thanks! Actually, I don't - but we picked our home verrry carefully, because it "backs up" to the boonies (the Bear Creek Conservation Area). Lots of nature out back, which is why virtually the entire rear of the home is big window or sliders.

Very dark at night so we can enjoy the Milky Way almost every evening - something we didn't ever see when we lived in the pits of Los Angeles County.

Terre Haute, Indiana...passing clouds but not obscuring the view all the time, moon looks about 3/4 obscured. It's a bit chilly outside, though.

It's freezing out here in Boston area but clear as a bell so I can see it well in spite of street lights. It must be georgeous in the countryside.

Just stepped out to take a look. Perfectly clear here in Boston, although very windy and cold! Moon's about 85% in the shadow. Dark side glowing faintly orange.

Alright, I'll say it: What did Bush know about this eclipse, and when did he know it? (Rolls eyes)

After 10+ days of cloudless skies here in south-east B.C., we now are overcast. :^(

The local druids, et al, are having some sort of 'harmonic convergence' shindig.

I think I'll go catch Don Cherry and the 2nd period in TO. ;^)

Had to turn out the lights on the moon because of those tax cuts for the rich.

Hey, one more thing (as I watch the eclipse from my computer). I was in your neighborhood today. Visited my daughter at MSU and my wife made me stop at the Stitchery on Grand River in Howell on the way back. Beautiful town.

About 7:45 in Central New Jersey. Again, it's a very clear night. The moon is about 3/4 covered.

(BTW, how often does this occur?)

This is so cool! Our entire block is out front looking at the moon. My next door neighbor's Grand Dad has a telescope on the lawn. We have some great Tasco binoculars and the view is spectacular! Thanks for the post.

Should we chant or dance at 8:06?
