Missed the Blood Moon Eclipse? [VIDEO]

I missed the lunar eclipse too, due to cloudy skies! But thankfully, lucky stargazers are sharing their time lapse videos!

I set the alarm for 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 15, and trotted outside. Cloudy.

I set the alarm for 2:30 a.m. Still cloudy. And some unidentified critter was snuffling nearby.

I didn't get to see the blood moon eclipse and it seems like most folks in my area didn't either. But lucky for us, there's three more total lunar eclipses on the way!

And while we're talking about lunar luck, those lucky enough to see the blood moon eclipse are posting time lapse videos on YouTube!

How were viewing conditions in your neck of the woods?

I saw the eclipse begin, at 11 pm through (very) thin clouds. I came back outside and watched it to totality at just past midnight, with clouds getting heavier (so sometimes it was nearly blurred out, sometimes it was almost clear - I could see Spica nearby and Mars a little further away). And then I went to bed - didn't try to watch it come out.

I was bummed out. I could barely see the moon through the light fog, as the earth started to block the moon, but when it was a total eclipse, and because of I guess the blood shade of red, it became completely viewless. Boo Hoo. The night before would have absolutely been the perfect night.
