    Did anyone else go out to see it? If you didn't know about it, here's some info. I guess I should've posted it as soon as I knew about it :/ My bad. It's already over, for those wondering.

    It was pretty cool. This was a total eclipse, and it doesn't really happen that often, so it was cool to watch; it comes around every 7-10 years or something if I recall correctly(I could be wrong, though, I didn't read too much about it).

    Lunar eclipses happen about twice a year. This one was barely visible from the Eastern US. There will be another one in February. It will probably be easier to see from the Eastern US.

    Total solar eclipses are rare... about every 7-10 years
