It was a clear night here and I watched it for a couple of hours. It was pretty neat ... first you could see the roundish outline of the earth creeping onto the moon then over a half an hour/45 minutes you could see the moon become totally enveloped by a rose colored shadow. When it was at totality it was quite a bit darker than it was during the normal full (98/99%) moon and the stars stood out like it was a new moon. Mind you, it was -30°C or so, so I watched it from the windows inside instead of freezing my arse off outside.
