    We will be able to see the eclipse here in Oregon. But the eclipse will already be in progress by time the moon rises here.
    Still it will be a extraordinary experience to have been witness to. They are calling for clear skies tonight thankfully. The past few meteor showers have been blocked by clouds.

    It's been very cloudy in IL today, but it looks like it's breaking up a bit now. I've been looking forward to the eclipse all week.

    way to cloudy here on Long Island NY.
    been hoping it would clear, but doesn't look that way.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    We can see it.

    If we stand on the curb in our driveway halfway from the house to the shop, tilt our heads slightly to the right. Bend at the knees and peek between two tall pine trees we can see the moon.

    I went out about 9; clouds had cleared here. Moon was about 3 /4th obscured then I've been sitting outside watching it since. Wish I could get a decent photo of it.

    The trees are now obscuring the view of the eclipse. On the upside we have an amazing view of the stars, they are so bright.

    We watched it here in Minnesota. Perfect night for viewing the moon from our front lawn. Our daughters, both middle school aged also enjoyed it. I was so excited that it happened early in the evening for us. ( fully eclipsed by 9:10p.m.) Usually when lunar or star events occur, it's at 3am or something... I need my sleep! This was the coolest lunar event I've ever witnessed! When I went out to check again at 10:15, the clouds had started rolling in, and had obscured much of the moon. So glad it was clear early on.

    Wonderful photos, Jeanne. It was way too cloudy here to see anything.
