Lunar Eclipse Just a sliver left[More:]It's azy here in Seattle, but the moon is not totally obscured by clouds. A real winter treat; heading back out...
Nothin' doin' in Portland. Thankfully there's the internet...

I went outside, I actually thought I would take some pictures for once. Too bright around the house, walked across the road into the park where it was darker... was there about five minutes when a coyote came running through about ten feet from me. Then I heard a large pack yipping very close, clearly somewhere else within the park. I guess a few coyotes are probably going to avoid a human rather than attack but it just felt like a bad idea to stick around, so no moon pictures for me tonight. lol

It's really cloudy here and I intended to be asleep now, but I can see it through the clouds. Pretty cool.

Fortunately the cloud cover here gave me an excuse to sleep through it.

Completely clouded over in Fresno when I went to bed, but I have seen two "perfect" lunar eclipses already.

Cloudy at first, but cleared up nicely. The pix are still uploading to flickr.

Yeah about five minutes after I posted another wave of clouds came through. It got heavier and heavier and I gave up about a quarter to one :( Too bad; that first glimmer of light that appears from the bloody, occluded moon is truly one of the most glorious natural events. Luckily while the solstice lunar eclipse is rare, lunar eclipses aren't - this is the fourth one I've seen. Here's to the next one being on a clear, warm summer night!

Nice pictures lysdexic! thanks for putting those up.

Here in the Original Portland, we had a nice snowfall that wreaked havoc with driving, but was pretty, and I expected the Solstice Eclipse to be obscured by clouds. But it cleared enough so that I could enjoy the full moon's brightness on the fresh snow. 3 inches of fluffy snow is easy shoveling, even for a couch tater. I gave serious thought to staying up to see the eclipse, but couldn't convince my body to cooperate.

Aw, too bad for Seattle and Vancouver. Out here in Fraser Valley (a couple hours from either city) it was hazy but viewable. So cool!
