    We got lucky. Conflicting weather reports made it uncertain if the Fort Lauderdale area would have clear enough skies to view it. But we can see it well, the eclipse is not blocked here. So far not the reddish Moon predicted, really just dark gray, but maybe that will change. The last bright lunar sliver just disappeared.

    I just checked, perhaps a slight reddish tinge, but no red. Maybe our location, air pollution, haze, or city lights, I dunno. I saw a lunar eclipse some years ago, just not one of these "supermoon" ones, and it was indeed red. Not this thing here tonight, which was basically a dimming of the Moon.

    I saw it here in California. It has a reddish tinge right now. I'll head out there in about 5 minutes to see it start to reveal itself again.

    Areas Los Angeles/Pasadena/NASA-Jet Propulsion Laboratories

    We had clouds cover almost the entire eclipse. Its been so humid and hot here along with higher than normal pacific ocean temperatures creating a "steamy" air, particle effect. Didn't even see any stars. Also, the moon took forever to rise up high enough off the horizon to get past all the city lights, complicated with the "halo" effect.

    This was the lowest moon (horizon) out of all 4 blood moons. I am sure the Griffith Observatory had difficulty too. I watched the rest of the eclipse on NASA Tv, broadcasting from another location due to cloud cover in Pasadena icon_sad.gif

    We got out of bed at 2.30 in the morning to watch the eclipse under clear skies here in the UK, thanks to an area of high pressure sitting over us. The moon appeared as a rusty-brown colour with a slight silvery edge.

    I think the shade vary from different parts of the world depending on atmospheric conditions at a given locality.

    I believe that's true.
