Blood Moon

So I just froze my ass off standing outside for ten minutes to watch the lunar eclipse and get a peek at Mars. The sky here is nice and clear and the moon looked amazing! Mars was so much brighter than normal and the moon was completely worth it; the colors were awesome, red and orange and amber at one end with a white crescent around the bottom edge. It was a good moment to just nerd out and be amazed by something so simple as the moon being in our shadow for a few hours. Won't be another one until September or so, so I figured I'd go outside and see the amazing sight. Has anyone else watched it tonight?
