It can be hard to come by good viewing conditions that coincide with your specific location and the right timing in order to see lunar eclipses in general. Luckily for us, the DFW Metroplex should have favorable conditions this time, and this eclipse is an especially rare one in that the moon will be at perigee. It should be easy to see since it will be peaking around 8-9 pm.

About 50% of moon is obscured right now, and 30 minutes to totality. If you happen to read this within the next hour or so, just walk outside and look in the sky to the east. The sky is a little hazy for me, but still very easy to see.

There was a little crowd on the street corner in our neighborhood. One of our neighbors has a nice telescope, and he brought it out for all of us to enjoy! It was definitely beautiful to see!

Wow I noticed it, but didn't know it was supposed to happen.

Had a pretty good view from our backyard here in Prosper. Not many lights around here at night.

Got on our roof with the wife, some drinks and Pink Floyd playing. It was a fun time!

initially it was surrounded by few clouds here in Frisco at 8pm. but it cleaned up at the right time around 9pm. Took some really nice pictures using my telescoping camera lens.

It was amazing to watch. Brought the kids out to the front yard and watched it for awhile. Went back inside and came out to see the blood moon. Glad it wasn't too cloudy to see!
