Pictures of the Eclipse

These aren't the best photos of the moon, I'll admit. But they record the change of the moon's visibility pretty well.
Below: The first photo, shortly after Earth's shadow begins to appear on the Moon. 
Below: At the Half-way point.
Below: The shadow now covers all but one-quarter of the Moon.
Below: The picture is rather grainy, but it shows the very little bit of moon left visible in the end.
Unfortunately, my digital camera wasn't strong enough to show the reddish darkened moon, after it was completely covered in Earth's shadow. It was really neat looking...But there's no photos...

However, I did find that this blogger got some great photos of the red moon.
Did any of ya'll get to watch the eclipse?
