Has anyone seen the lunar eclipse early morning today, on the 28th? I got up at 4am just to find out it didn't start till 4:50-ish http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif Too bad we could only see the beginning of it where I am. Anyone live in central/western side of North America and seen the full eclipse? I remember watching the eclipse of the sun back in Ukraine when I was a kid, in 1997, where only 10% of it was left visible. This wasn't nearly as spectacular, but fun nonetheless.

If only it didn't occur in the middle of the night, Eastern time....

I live in the eastern US, and although I didn't see this one, I saw a total lunar eclipse about 4 years ago. It was exciting to see the moon go red from it.
