    Getting a beautiful show tonight in South Central North America.
    Looks like a chocolately reddish jellyfish.

    Right now it is partially obscured from an overcast. When the shadow was about half way through I could see it just fine. Maybe Ill go look again right now and see if some of the clouds are gone.

    Enjoying it with my family now...though, I get occassional creeping cloud cover. Still, a beautiful moon and a beautiful night.

    Oh very nice! I can see it out of my window. I had to pull out my old binoculars. Over here in L.A. the break in the clouds affords us the chance to see it. The right side of the moon is currently dipped in red or a rusty kind of color.

    Just the very edge of the left side is bright.

    It looks like another planet. At least that's what I'm imagining. [​IMG]

    Clouds just cleared up. Wow! It looks beautiful right now. I guess the moon has about 75% shadow left on the right side. I can see the left side reflecting now while the rest is red.

    Very pretty.

    Well it's pretty much over in L.A. because the clouds have taken over. But I went upstairs to my roof to get a better look and it was beautiful. Thanks for the reminder, Henry. I had forgotten about it until I saw this thread. [​IMG]
