For more info, here are a couple previous threads about this Eclipse:

Headsup: 97% lunar eclipse, longest in century about to happen

Yeah, it's the same for me usually.

I was surprised how clear it is/was. I haven't seen a single cloud tonight.

It is cold though, but cold and clear is better than warm and cloudy.

It was cloudy earlier, but got a good look at it from 0230-0320 local.

Looked awesome through the binoculars. Tried to get a pic, but didn't have enough lens or a rotator, so they're not great.

Doesn't this happen only once every 140 years ?

It depends. On the region you ask this question for or if you ask universally.

The moon isn't circling the Earth in a perfect circle. Apogee is the point where the moon is at maximum distance away from Earth. Then, for an eclipse to happen, the Sun, Earth and Moon need to align on a straight line.

For a lunar eclipse like this to happen, the moon also needs to be on the same plane, because space is 3D. For you to be able to see it, the rotation of Earth (time), differently said, your location, needs to align with the timespan of the event.

So for the US to experience it, it's around 588 years I think this happened the last time. Imagine every one of these factors is a metronome with a different speed.
1Hz = 1 Day

Earth location (365Hz)
Moon location (27.32 Hz)
Apogee reached (27.32 Hz/2)
Rotation of Earth divided by longitude 6° (1Hz/(360°/6))
Ecliptic angle of the moon (27.32Hz/2)

So you have at least five metronomes, some ticking at the same frequency, some at half of it, some at fractions and to make things complicated, they were not set in motion at the same time. When all click at once, that's the moment.

Maybe you can imagine better now, why this is a very rare occurance.

Spent a couple of hours with the family watching this event around a bonfire in our back yard tonight. It's 7 below (*F) currently and while seeing the eclipse was very cool, I think I appreciated the bonfire more.

It seems so much brighter outside now. Can't really see very many stars right now.

I liked watching all of the stars gradually getting brighter and brighter, during the first half of the eclipse.

I thought it was supposed to be tonight, well tomorrow morning, around 4 am (for MI)?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but nope, it's over.

Lostgirl picked up your weekend reference in the other thread and I made a second post after hers, saying it's in 8.5 hours.

That means early Friday morning, I am so sorry you missed it.
If it helps you any way, if your grandsons, if they were not already with you from the evening thursday to friday, would have had no chance to witness it with you anyways.

Many could not watch it though, myself included, because of cloud coverages.

Well dang it!

But I will show him the video tonight.

Back in the seventies the moon used to look orange like that when I had blood shot eyes from drinking.
