it wasn't red during the actual eclipse. Have you seen heroes? The lunar eclpse totally pwned theirs. LOL!

~During the clipse, you see the rainbow ON THE MOON! ITS CRAZY! On the top rim of the moon u see the sunlight (all colors) being spread out behind the earth. After, it turns red, then it turns red/white, then normal white again. mush1d.gif u can't catch that on a camera. mush1d.gif

I saw it, it looked really cool, but I didn't see it as red/orange as you did. I probably should'vewent out again.

It went from about 7PM - 11PM here. Or something like that anyway. :x

So you were out looking at it too eh? I fell asleep and was only there for the last hour and a half, but still, it was really great.

Although...I didn't have the state of mind to take any pictures of it.
Back for break and maybe beyond!

According to Wiki New Zealand was the ideal place to see it, I spent 1 hour staring at it, and I got some pics, since you already posted them, I won't post them.

Red ftw.

Thanks to Faded

Ugh, I tried reminding myself everytime. I knew about it the day before it happened. But at the time it was there I totally forgot everything (it was there around 6PM-7PM (Or was it 7PM-8PM?) my time!). I remembered the day after. SDFKJSDF.

Yeah, according to Wiki the next one is in February.

I knew about it, I set my alarm for 4:30, but I just turned it off and kept sleeping.

It was like 7pm-10pm for me, but it was so cloudy.
