We can see the moon right now. It's gynormous! Not sure if we'll be able to see the eclipse because Mother Nature is supposed to have a frozen/snowy hissy fit tonight. The sky may cloud over before we get a chance to enjoy the eclipse. But...I'm hopin'!

Its cloudy here as well but maybe it will clear up enough I sure hope so. A regular pair of binoculars can make viewing better.

Its very clear and I could if I wanted to, but its SOOOO cold out and I have to dodge around under alot of trees to get a good look.
Oh well.
No wait I can see it perfectly out of the boys bedroom window...... I'll have to sneak in after they pass out.

Its clear here and the moon is out, just waiting to see the eclipse. I hope I can see it from my upstairs window, don't know if I want to bundle up and go back out.

It's so bright that with all the snow to reflect off of I can see all the way to the end of our road in the dark... about a half mile. Pretty cool! And to think I was going to skip it..
