The moon was apparently at a good distance for the start of the lunar eclipse tonight. I actually got a reasonably decent picture. Not great, but probably better than any moon shot I've ever attempted.

Frustratingly, by the time it was nearly a total eclipse, it had moved to a distance at which I cannot focus clearly. Sigh.
However. I will be grateful to have seen an event that hasn't occurred in over 300 years and won't occur again in this exact way for over another 300-400+ years. And the Comedian was sweet enough to stay up with me and hang out in the cold, when he really wanted to come in and go to sleep. I also had a great time tweeting with other friends around the country who stayed up for this. It was a great evening!
Edited to add: Here's a very cool time lapse of the entire eclipse from a guy in Florida.
