stay up late for the light show

The moon will begin to enter the Earth's partial shadow, called the penumbra, around 9:05 p.m. EDT.

But observers will be hard pressed to notice much until around 10:03 p.m. EDT, when the moon starts to creep into the Earth's total shadow, the so-called umbra.

The total eclipse will begin at 11:13 p.m. EDT, peak at about 11:40 p.m. EDT and end at 12:07 a.m. EDT on Friday.

Thumbs up Saw it in NH

A group of us saw it for a very brief moment as the clouds covering made it difficult for a decent sighting.
ciao

Thumbs up Partial sighting in Vermont

We got a good partial view through mostly cloudy skies in Vermont, from 11 pm to about midnight. Thanks for the tip-off! Since my subscription to Sky & Telescope ran out, I have been missing events like this.

I was lucky to catch a few seconds, while driving home around 10.30PM. So many clouds, I just got a flash of it. I had to make sure to keep Mike informed about cloud cover all the rest of the way, so he did not try to peep and drive. His subscription to Sky & Telescope is over too, but he still follows some things on the Net.
But mostly, his 82 years mother keeps him informed by email.
Last November she came for an eclipse and meteroite shower. With freezing temperatures at night, she stayed in our AS #1 with very few amenities just for that. She has been known to spend hours in freezing weather, wrapped in blankets, in the middle of the Pines Barrand of NJ to go and watch any stuff of this type.
Talk about dedication.

Missed it

I was at Lost Maples state Natural Area which is so far from any towns, so that the sky is really dark there. My binoculars were at the ready. Up to about 8PM, the sky was totally clear; then the wind started to howl and in came the clouds. It was impossible to even get a glance at the moon even though I kept checking until about 11.

Oh well!
