Tis a bit cloudy here in Jersey, and for a lot of the east coast... so not much to see when going outside... but if anyone is awake, here's a great link to follow... almost there...
It’s a tiny sliver now here around Dallas, close to totality in the next few hours.
It looks grey.
Thank you. I was watching it happen from here in Northern California.
We just got a little cloud cover. Hope it clears away.
Thanks again for posting.
total eclipse begins at 2:06 cdt and ends at 3:24.
Peak eclipse is 2:45 cdt
this one is not locking up as often:
Full eclipse has begun.
I’m so glad we have the internet and livestreaming so we don’t have to miss things like this. It’s raining here in TN and I’m so p.o.’d! Been waiting for months for tonight. We live in the boonies which is perfect for watching the skies at night.
I’ve been watching on the NASA website since the eclipse started. The moon’s turning red now. Wish I was outside watching instead of sitting here at the computer. It’s just not the same. :-(
Ranging in color from dark orange to red here in Minnesota.
Bright and. Lear here in Las Vegas. Currently a surreal grey red moon. Trippy indeed.
Went red here in Dallas. Getting darker by the minute. Mars off to the right. Great sight.
A little eerie.
I saw it go total maybe 8 years ago. It’s amazing.
same here, nice but cold outside,
I’m jealous! LOL! You get to see it in the sky.
I was lucky enough to see an almost-total eclipse a few years ago and it gave me goosebumps. A really pretty sight, plus hearing all the dogs for miles around barking and howling made it an eerie experience. No dogs tonight. The rain and dropping temps must be keeping them inside. Can’t say I blame ‘em.
Damnedest thing. Here from Grover’s Mill, it looked like a series of small explosions from the surface of Mars. <8^0
Watching it here in western Colorado, clear night sky, at 4800’ above sea level. Excellent viewing.
Don't worry. The governor will stop the invaders on George Washington Bridge. :-)
Are you referring to the moon’s appearance or are you watching Mars through a telescope?
It’s pretty unusual to have any type of cloud cover here in Tahoe at night - unless it’s snowing - but tonight we did have that very thin high cloud cover.
Lot’s of fun watching the moon slowly get covered. Too bad the clouds took out some of the view.
I’m out here in Northern California. I had a great view up until 40 minutes ago.
Now I see nothing. Darn clouds.
He’s having Wells flashbacks.
Santa Rosa to be exact.
Think we’re maxed out here in Dallas area. The bottom area is brighter than the top. But still dark red.
DUH! Been too long since I’ve seen/heard “War of the Worlds”.
In the early ‘70s, I found an album at a flea market that was a recording of the original radio broadcast. If you didn’t hear the very first few seconds, you didn’t know it was Wells’ production. I could see how so many people freaked out when they heard it that night.
I wish I still had it. I don’t know what happened to it. Moved too many times and it got lost in the shuffle. :-(
It looks like clouds are moving in wherever NASA’s telescope is. I hope they don’t get any thicker than they are right now.
Yes it is.
Until I got to the end of your sentence I was wondering who the heck would watch on the internet when they could see the real thing outside. Sure hope you get a break in the clouds. It is cloud free where I am and it is really a spectacular sight. I don't get much worked up over stars and planets (not my thing) but this is really a wonderful sight. I was told on another thread what looks like a bright star next to the moon is Mars.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a chance in heck of seeing it here. We have rain for several more hours. Never seems to fail. Let there be an eclipse (lunar or solar), a fabulous meteor shower, etc. and we get rain. My dad got me interested in the skies when I was young and it stuck. If it was clear here, I’d be watching this through my telescope. As it is, I’m stuck watching it on the computer screen. pooey!
About 90% in North Dakota at the moment. Deep dark red with a light sliver at the bottom.
Could see the moon fine until the fun stuff started happening. Then full cloud cover. Saw part of the eclipse but wanted to see the red part. Oh well. Crick in my neck now from sitting out in the park for hours.
Doorman thinks I’m nuts. He said, “Were you looking for a parking spot?”
I had that album, too. There audio CDs available now on Amazon, and probably elsewhere.
Cornel West and Elaine Pagels?
Oh my nooooo.....
I got home from work at 1 am and planned on walking outside at around 2 To take a peak but my neighbor was in his driveway with a telescope so we stood out there together talking until it totally eclipsed. (and freezing our butts off) Never saw “red.” Looked like a grayish orange to me. Anyways, the discussion with neighbor was cool because he turns out to be a pretty smart guy. Awake and enlightened. Could even be a FReeper for all I know:)
You can also get a Slooh membership...cheaper than buying a telescope & a CCD astronomy camera! ;-)
I hope you get to see the next one. It’s so amazing to look at the real thing. I was fortunate this time that our skies were clear enough to see it and Mars. It was quite a site. But, like you said, at least there’s the internet when the weather doesn’t cooperate. That’s better than not seeing it at all.
Cool! I’ll have to look for it. It was more fun to listen to it than to watch any of the movies. It’s like reading a book . . . leaves the visuals to one’s imagination.

No kidding, Radu! Same here, in Western Quebec. Tonight, full of clouds; I was in bed and asleep but woke up and realized it was about time for the eclipse, and my son was interested, so I got my camera and big rubber boots and went outside. We’re in the middle of the forest, so it has to be right overhead to see anything even if it’s clear, which it wasn’t.
The sky was light and a reddish color off to the east, but I didn’t see the moon.
The only time I’ve ever seen a celestial event was some meteor shower about 15 years ago, in August, in Denver-there was a big, clear sky.
And once I saw the space shuttle. I think! :)
When I didn’t see the moon I came back in and decided to have cereal because I was hungry after waiting up all night for the pinkish/orangeish sky. LOL!
Oh well. I’m glad so many people got to see such a wonderful sight. A real gift from the heavens... :
Live just NW of LA—perfectly clear, just got back from a run and loved the serenity of the scene.
Whew! The weather isn’t only knocking me out of watching the eclipse outside. It’s messing with our internet connection. We have a satellite ISP and the signal keeps disappearing. Now I can’t even watch the eclipse online!!! AAAAAAUUUUUGHGGGGHHHH!!
The night of the last good eclipse that was visible from here was a clear one so I was able to see that one. It’s easy to understand how events such as this freaked out our ancient ancestors.
Fabulous in Hawaii ....perfect weather
