Did anyone see the total lunar eclipse this morning?

A full lunar eclipse only happens when the earth passes directly between the sun and moon -- a spectacular sight that won't happen again until December of 2010.

I got all excited when I read it was on Feb.21st then I read time it was due to happen at and realised, dammit! I missed it too :(

So courtsey of the NY Times, here is what we all missed:

It doesn't really look like it is made of cheese, does it?

It doesn't look much like cheese to me either. But there are probably some obscure blue cheeses around that might bear some resemblace.

I'm sorry I missed this but I have zero luck with astronomical sightings in general. Thoughts of cheese and the moon lead me to consider that some cheese company is missing a marketing opportunity somewhere...
