The night is perfect here for viewing it, the only thing that sucks is that the moon is getting pretty close to the horizon, so by the time the full eclipse takes place it won't be visible here anymore...

It's starting....I'm taking pictures every 15 mins or so. It should be done by 9:10. And may turn red as it eclipses.

I don't ride, I cook!

Ahh to think we are half way around the world, but looking at the same moon...how romantic!

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

It is cool seeing the same thing half way around the world. I called my sister in WV and we talked while looking at the moon together. I haven't been able to see her in a few years, and I miss her. It was nice to share this with her. ~Mandy

Oh, my pics didn't come out either.

I don't ride, I cook!

WV, eh? I lived there for 3.5 years. Beautiful country but incest seems mighty rampant out there! I miss living out there even though they stared at my mom and I like we were green aliens whenever we walked in to the grocery store.

I took some pics too. I had to use manual focus so it's not as sharp as I'd like it to be. I'll post some tonight when I get home.

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.
