    I know it's a poor substitute, but you can view it live online. http://www.nasa.gov\watchtheskies It's cloudy here so I guess I'll watch it on my monitor.

    If the dog wakes me up in the middle of the night to go out -
    I'll look up - otherwise no way am I crawling out of a warm bed to go look outside in single digit temps to see a moon get covered up. Nope - No way!

    We stepped out onto the patio and peeked another 10 minutes and it will be total. It is such a breathtaking sight to see.

    The eclipse was awesome. You couldn't ask for nicer viewing weather. The temperature was in the 60's. The clouds started causing problems right at the peak. What a wonderful sight on the winter solstice.
