Eclipse!

It's happening NOW! Go outside and watch!

ETA: 7:20 - We had great viewing for several minutes, but now some clouds have blown in to cover it. I'm hoping they'll blow away again. Soon, please. :D

ETA2: 7.46 - Clouds blew away! YAY! Just a few more minutes. I think I might have some half-way decent photos.

ETA3: 8.02 - Totality is over! It's getting bright enough. I guess enough virgins were sacrificed to appease the gods. ;)

ETA4: 9.11 - It's over! The moon is back again. All of her. :)

Okay, so that was really cool. Pictures soon.

A Few Eclipse Photos

I've managed to work around the missing compact flash dealie-o (in an ugly way, but let's not talk about that, all right?), so here are few pictures of tonight's total lunar eclipse. I might post more tomorrow, after reviewing all of them (and figuring out how to get the rest of them onto this computer), but I wanted to post at least a few tonight, while the "magic" is still in the air. :)
