Here in Northwich, Cheshire just started raining about 10 minutes ago (21:05).
Lots of cloud cover so unless it suddenly clears we aren't going to see anything.

Anyone with nice clear skies?

All set up and ready on a hill in plenty of time for once, but just blanket cloud so have given up. Saw a hare in a wheat field so might just come back early one morning and see if he obliges.

Indeed the eclipse has been eclipsed. We actually had a thunderstorm all the way through totality, and still have rain now.

Where I am in NZ I just missed out this morning. Moon set just when it was getting good, and was too low to the horizon for me to see it in town. Cloudy skies didn't really help either...

Like some others, a 4:30am start to the day. A quick look outside before getting ready to pack and leave, and the stars and the moon was out, and looking good. No clouds. So we hit the road for a good look out point, and off we went. We found a good place to set up, and was ready and waiting for the event.

Still no clouds around

The first high clouds are starting to appear

And the clouds roll in, and this is the last one that I was able to get before it all went South

No Blood Moon here either

Armed with a K3, some M, A, FA, DA, and star lens. With an eye open for "just one more lens".

I haven't looked at my efforts yet. I don't expect anything wonderful from them but I enjoyed watching it with my own eyes even if the photos are rubbish.
There was a band of low cloud so the moon was fuzzy but visible. I also took some of it with Mars. If they are any good I may post some later.
We sat on the Afsluitdijk overlooking the Ijsselmeer. We could have gone closer to home on the sea dike, from where we could have watched the sun set then turn to see the moonrise, but it was packed. Good view of the ISS too. It was quite windy but still 28C at 11 pm!
Today heavy cloud and some much needed rain promised.

The crowds gathered too, and the Milky Way made an appearance along with Mars.

Very nice Steve.

All I can say about my efforts is I am glad I watched it, because my photos are rubbish.
