    Certainly did here in Sacramento!

    Spring Break for my son, so he was able to sleep in today. Daughter was already asleep, so I took him and my wife outside to look at it.

    As we were walking outside, he said, "The sun is sleeping, and the moon is awake!" Wifey and I both smiled. One of those parent/child moments you'll never forget..

    Then he saw the moon.

    "The moon is sleeping, and the sun is awake!!"

    Without getting so technical that I cause his 4 year old mind to completely implode, we talked about the moon and what an eclipse is. He wants to see one again.. real soon.. Like, now.

    Man, I wish I got to see that. I stayed up til 2 last night hoping the clouds would break enough for me to check it out. Never did. : \

    Oh well, we've still got 3 more to look forward to over the next year and a half. Hopefully I'll catch the next this October.

    It was a nice clear night here on the Front Range in Colorado. My 14 year old son, wife and I went out a few times to see it. It was awesome!

    I meant to..but I fell asleep and missed it. :mad: I awoke at almost 4am with all my lights on and it was too late. At least this wasn't a once in a lifetime thing...

    Did not see the eclipse, but saw the reddish moon when leaving for work at 0610 this morning.
