There’s a lunar eclipse occurring tonight, the only eclipse until 2007.
I was outside watching the skies at 9:30pm, but there were clouds everywhere! I kept on going outside at 10:30, 11:30, and then 12:15 (I watched Van Helsing in the middle of that, which does have moons in it too). At 12:15 the clouds had finally cleared and I saw it. Looks like I missed most of the different stages and the red/orange colours as well . But what I did see was absolutely beautiful! The moon was so bright.
Edit: I did try and take a photo of it, but all I got was a whitish blurry blob. Here are some better pics.
