North Americans:

Stop reading BGG, go outside, and look at the eclipse!

We have miraculous clear skies here in Cleveland.

Completely socked in here in Salt Lake City, Utah. We have inversion right now so the fog is blocking out the sky.

Clear skies here in Abbotsford BC. Looked incredible.

It contrasts in front of the starscape and so you can see it floating there instead of the usual 2D white disk.

Totally overcast/fog here in the Netherlands at 4 AM. yuk

Haven't had enough sleep. Got up for nothing, so you can position your eclipse someplace dark. (in the shade of Earth for example, but other oft-mentioned places are a possibility too.)

I got to see the first part of the eclipse and then once it got to all the way full, the clouds rolled in and ruin the rest of it for me.

I tried to get pictures, but my the combination of my camera and my photography skills didn't lead to good pictures of the eclipse. The ones I took with very long exposures looked cool though, even if the moon seemed so bright it looked like a star.

With a quick shutter speed, my little compact camera will show the eclipse, but not much else



But with 15 seconds, the moon looks like a star or a spaceship



Results in the middle give us the worst of both worlds: a full moon and no background.

So we learn that I should get a better camera, or at least find someone who can use mine properly.
