Well I was playing around with my point and shoot. I used a new lens and the pics didn't turn out so great. I also have a ton of video that I'll try to upload tomorrow.

Great pics, Mike, thanks! It was very cloudy here and even though I was up till 2:30 trying to see something, it was not successful.

Yes, same here--cloudy and started snowing. I really wanted to see it, too. Oh, well, will catch it next time.

Regards,
Michael

Amazing pictures, thank you! We woke up to a foot of new snow here, it was cloudy last night. Isn't this a beautiful little world?! ...Noel

Awesome! I missed it, it was cloudy at 10 pm when I looked so I went to bed... then I heard this morning that it cleared up in time to catch it. Drat! but I did get a good nights sleep.

Yes, Noel, totally amazing beautiful world.

thanks everyone. I've been busy at the office so I haven't had a chance to put together a video yet.

Thanks so much for the pix! It looks so beautiful. I, sadly, slept through it. Of all the night NOT to have insomnia!!!

you are all welcome. I think the thing that bothers me the most is that the pics didn't turn out like I thought they would. Like I said I just have a point and shoot (Canon S3), and I'm not a photographer but all my moon pics from the past showed way more detail.

Last night I even grabbed a (cheap eBay) telephoto lens that I had stashed in my drawer. In the past, without the lens I would capture the craters, but last night... nothing. The pics from look flat and full of noise. I think part of the problem was that the humidity was high and I think the lens was getting foggy and washed out the detail. I should have got that no fog crab that you put on bathroom mirrors, but I wasn't prepared.

I guess I should be happy that I was able to witness it, but like I said before... I am my worst critic.

Here are a couple pics from a few years back... with no telephoto lens.







BTW the pics from last night are thumbnails. If you click them, they'll get bigger but they are still lacking detail.
