I was real lucky to get those, it's partly cloudy and I got them between and in holes in the clouds.

The full eclipse didn't show up at all, maybe I should have used the flash!:rolleyes:

its a pretty cool looking thing... We kept checkingon it every 10 mins to see how much it changed. I'm pretty sure it almost all covered in Pa if not completly covered

Yeah, pretty cool!! Not a cloud in the sky tonight, which is pretty rare around here. I went to pick up dinner and many people were out and about, some taking pictures. I called my brother in San Diego to see if he could see it? Nope, cloudy :confused:

Saw it here in So Cal! I actually did not read that there was going to be one tonight, but I was driving home from work tonight and just happened to look up and see it!

One of my young drivers called and invited me to come look at Saturn's rings while the moon was shadowed. I am still in awe. The awe factor of seeing through the telescope is huge compared to looking at a nice crisp picture. First time in a long time that I feel like I have done something completely new (to me). I highly recommend.

I got some pics... just need to download them to the computer and resize so they'll meet TT requirements on size.

Old folklore says, the number of stars inside the ring around the moon, is how many days it will be till the next round of wintery precipitation. It's always been true around here. We had 1 star last night and we are to have sleet, snow and freezing rain tonight and tomorrow!

Interesting photo sequence on Yahoo,
31715
A sequence of images taken approximately every twenty minutes show the moon passing through the shadow of the earth as photographed in Toronto Wednesday Feb. 20, 2008. A total lunar eclipse, can only occur on a full moon, when the moon passes through the shadow of the earth. The next total lunar eclipse will not be visible from North America until Dec. 21, 2010.(AP Photo/THE CANADIAN PRESS/Adrian Wyld)

not the greatest of moon pictures that I've taken but I totally spaced the eclipse last night until I saw it posted here so I didn't get much of a chance to truly get the camera set just right

honestly I've taken much better....kinda disappointed with myself in the quality

You still did much better than I did. My little Canon wasn't intended for such shots!

it was taken with a Canon 30D with a 75-300mm lens

if weather permits this year I plan on taking a lot of pictures at CSM this year to share with everyone...
