Astronomical PSA: Lunar Eclipse Tomorrow

From Space Weather News:
This Saturday, August 16th, people on every continent *except* North America can see a lunar eclipse. At maximum, around 2110 UT (5:10 pm EDT), more than 81% of the Moon will be inside Earth's shadow, producing a vivid red orb in the night sky visible to the naked eye even from light-polluted cities. The entire eclipse lasts more than 3 hours, so there's plenty of time for gazing, drinking coffee, and taking pictures.
North American folk will have to make do with a web cast.

It was too cloudy here to see it. Did you catch it at all? I forgot to ask yesterday...
