I set the alarm for 3:30 (ET), got up and looked outside. Cloudy. Then I figured this doesn't come along every day, so put on the back door duckies and trekked out to the middle of the back yard. And there was the dirty orange orb! I still remember a really clear night for a lunar eclipse back in the 80's or 90's when I was up in Wawa. That was beautiful. No city lights to interfere.

I was going to watch, but got tired, and convinced myself to go to sleep by saying "it's just a shadow" lol

Went to sleep but oddly woke up around 2:30 am, so I stumbled outside to catch a look. Our skies were cold and clear with the gorgeous full moon, it was right overhead and a stunning coppery color. The eclipse was nearly finished, I could still see a sliver of bright along the edge but that red copper color was beautiful. Definitely one of the prettiest eclipses I've seen in my life.

I missed it! I was up watching Dexter well into the night but totally forgot. :duh:
