Thanks for the photo. Three times I went out last night to check but disappointingly heavy cloud cover blanketed the sky.

9 ( +11 / -2 )

I tried to see it. But it was cloudy.

It was beautiful! Took some shots with my i-pad, but they didnt turn out too well! It really looked reddish, orange at first, but as it passed, it turned into an almost brilliant white.

Last night was a "super moon" too! All the easier to see, from where we were!

Full cloud-cover here in Osaka :(.

I was really looking forward to this, but thick cloud cover in Chiba. Couldn't see anything.

It was a nice spectacle, a little bit cloudy but that gave it an interesting unfocused feeling.

Moon is just moon. I've seen it since I was born. Nothing wonderful for me.

My wife was looking forward to this all week but it was too cloudy in our coastal area to get a good look at it :(

We spent hours watching with our strawberry mochi moon cakes, but nothing. Cloudy, yellow sand?

Too cloudy here, too.

This picture has really eclipsed my expectations.

Was really a tremoondous spectacle.

At least it helped to distract from the lunar-tics in power making ridiculous decisions on a daily basis.

(Yes, my Netflix special is coming out soon).

I wish I could have seen this one. At least I got to enjoy a beautiful, colorful sunset yesterday -- always a treat that never grows old for me.

People would benefit if they went out every night for a year, and looked for the moon. There are patterns. It's not just some weird thing that pops up with a tail like Godzilla every once in a while.

Had beautiful clear skies here on the east coast of Australia. It was quite a spectacle.

Residents of Japan maybe yes.

But residents of Tokyo, definitely no.

Saw zero in Tokyo! Devastated by cloud cover. Won't come around like that again to 2032.

Good. Suga and the boys need a good MOON right about now.

The next time a total lunar eclipse will be visible in Japan will be Nov 8, 2022.
