The shadow of the earth will eclipse the moon beiginning just after 5:00 a.m. Eastarn, and the toal eclipse will take place at 6:15 a.m. Unfortunately, there is a tree in the yard just to the west of our house, and i may not be able to see it. It would be really cool if someone could post pictures of the event.

Should be happening in about an hour, as far as I am aware.

I last saw a blood moon on holiday whilst sitting on a balcony at 2am with my younger brother about twenty years ago.
We sat with a large whisky each, smoking cigars and watching the squid fishermen just offshore in the Med.
The ladies wanted us to wake them up when anything happened, but when I went and knocked on their doors, one told me to bugger off and the other said something unrepeateable.

Here is some trivia re. the event taking place right now....

Woo-hoo! The moon has cleared the tree and is about three-quarters in eclipse. It appears that it will still be above my visual horizon in fifteen minutes.

@Lordyaswas,
The old boy dog went out and pooped on the stoop . . . but i saw it in time, and didn't step in it. I was very, very lucky this morning.

I got up at 5 Central, not expecting to see anything, for the trees and the lateness of the time. Turns out I got to see some of it.
