    Was all ready to time lapse the moonrise, but the cloud cover pretty much bummed me out. So, expected nothing better for the eclipse and only happened to see the moon as it was about to disappear entirely in Earth's shadow. Cameras "just" about normalized to temp/humidity so did get some shots (though still somewhat fogged): [​IMG]

    Yeah, clouds got me as well, took some time lapsed pictures as it eclipsed but at about 99% eclipsed the clouds moved in and covered it up completely, and they kept it covered until it was about 50% back to normal, so missed the 'blood moon' entirely..

    Was disappointed, NASA used a telescope site in Alabama and also too cloudy there. DH found a feed from boston and they had a clear view.

    I got a birds eye view ;)

    The kids even got to see the first half; its usually too cloudy and too late in the night for them to see.

    I didn't even realize it was tonight until I was stumbling around out there wondering what happened to the big bright full moon; I couldn't see! :D

    Heavily cropped. Clouds broke right before eclipse, but sky was a little hazy due to prescribed burn in forest:
