    Any one see the partial lunar eclipse last night?where I am it covered the bottom corner of the moon but sadly I didn't see it as two things conspired against me,1/early shifts at work, 2/clouds.I've seen a full lunar eclipse in 2015,very impressive, but never one of these partials. Unlike partial solar eclipses the partial lunar ones are not held to be very good.

    The moon played peek-a-boo with rain clouds where I am down in Georgia. Didn't notice any darkening. What time did the eclipse occur and where are you located?

    Missed this myself. It was a partial from our locations - so I deferred as sleep took priority for Your Truly. But I'm sure some creative 'Googling' would supply a time-line for this.

    But have some images from an article yesterday:

    Take care,
