It's still in totality as I write. I went outside to watch it at around 4:30 am our time; max totality was at 4:55. The sky was clear and the stars bright, and the dim orange moon at totality was one of the best viewings of a lunar eclipse I've ever had. It was high enough in the sky to completely escape all the haze effects near the horizon. While I was out there with binoculars, I also looked at the nebulae in Orion and the Pleiades cluster. Beautiful viewing this morning!
