Hmm... There was almost a full moon for me last night about 6:30 P.M.

The eclipse started around 2:00 I think, anyway, that's when I got up to get coffee and went out to see it start.
Pretty fascinating how it went red for a short time and then nearly disappeared.

It was really bright last night. I could look out my bedroom window and see the whole driveway illuminated.

I live high up on the ridge and it illuminated the Columbia river for miles below me.

Same here, I thought I left the outside lights on, till I realized I could see the mountain across the canyon lit up, I knew my lights could never in a million years shine that far. :blink:
Anyway, that was until 4:00 Am when it went into eclipse mode and you couldn't see a thing. :laugh:

After a few weeks of early Spring, we just plummeted to 21 last night with light snow all day and more coming and temps in the teens.
Quite a shock to the Valley as well, with early fruit and almond crop blooms being frozen off, expect to see higher prices come harvest time.
