We all ran outside about 8 pm during the class I was taking but no luck. Too much cloud cover here in Colorado. Bummer!

Looked but only saw haze, mist and clouds. Temps around 32. Maybe in 2010.
Work? I don't have time to work....I'm retired.

Started watching it around 8:30, cold out so I sat on the porch and watched through the skylight. Had to go to bed at 10 when it was almost total, got up again around 10:45 and it was that redish color. Our local news channel reported that the last time we had an eclipse like this was during the 2004 World Series, he didn't think many eyes were looking at the sky that night.

i heard that the color of the moon during an eclipse is the result of all the accumulated sunrises and sunsets at that moment reflected from earth. though i'm not sure if that is correct, while enjoying the eclipse, i kept both the thought of a projected corona of terrestrial twilight in mind along with the poetry of such gravitational alignment of moon, earth & sun that even the tides stopped to gaze.
