The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
No matter where you're from or what you believe, there's something amazing yet comforting in knowing we all look up and see the same sky.
Maybe that's what makes celestial events, like last night's lunar eclipse, so magical. iReporters from all over the world shared their view of the stunning eclipse, and we were struck by the fact that people so far away from each other all captured similar images of the moon.
Have a look. Here's Atlanta, Georgia, where CNN is:
And in roughly the same part of the country, an image from Pensacola, Florida:
Up in Canada, here's the view from London, Ontario:
And all the way across the world, Manila, Philippines still saw the same eclipse:
Coming back to the U.S., we have pictures from Patchogue, New York:
You can see all the beautiful images of the eclipse in our assignment - these are just a select few. See you at the next magical meetup in the sky!
It's pretty cool how much smaller the moon looks during an eclipse.
Why do cool things like this only happen at 3 o'clock in the morning....
It seems like I was the only one here at work that stayed up and watched it. I thought it was amazing. I took my cat out and hugged her in the cold and watched it. I did the same thing with the same kitty about 4 years ago watching another lunar eclipse. I only got a few hours sleep, but it was worth it!
You should have a man in your life.
has cats==no man
men are mouthy. cats love you unconditionally.
Flying in the front seat from San Fran to Hawaii late last night gave me a front row seat at thirty four thousand feet. This event was awesome!
This was so cool in Philly
@ EastCoastMM - You would think with access to the vast amounts of information on the internet you could have done a little research before making your comment. Either you are truly stupid, or you failed at trying to be funny. Did you think you were going to see a lunar eclipse in the middle of the day?
Totally incredible experience. And there were some meteors streaking through the atmosphere as well. When the eclipse was at its fullest, the moon looked like an orange weather balloon floating in the sky. You could really discern the spherical shape of the moon. Normally it seems at a full moon to be a flat 2D image suspended in space. Last night it was just awesome to think the Earth's shadow stretched 250,000 miles through space and could cover up the moon that way. On my 400th anniversary, I'd like to watch this again, while pushing up the daisies.
@Rickey - I thought it was a pretty funny comment. Sounds like someone woke up on the wrong side of their dad this morning...
@Zeitgeist13 - Perfect, another unoriginal moron quoting things they have heard. I hate sheeple. You probably have an iPhone too...
Wow Rickey is a troll.
lol heaven forbid that anyone ever repeat anything they ever heard anyone else say!! BUT WAIT! You said 'sheeple,' and I've heard someone else say that before, which makes you DUN DUN DUNNNN unoriginal...
An indescribable free gift from God!
We were looking forward to the "show", but unfortunately snow and a very cloudy sky dominated! Bummer.
@Rickey555 get over yourself!
Very cool lunar eclipse...great pictures. Oh yeah, regarding Bobyouruncle and gvic2002's remarks about TrudyBird and her cat...I am willing to bet that both of you are really suffering a serious lack of women in your pathetic lives...given your comments, you two have a serious disrespect issue for women...but ya'all know that.
These were taken from Broomfield, CO. It was very clear last night. Worked out great...

Specialk64, or not.
@Rickey555 - You forgot to take your grump meds today didn't you?!?! Shame on you! Go take your meds so you can stop spreading all of your 'good cheer'!
bob033048, thumbs up good sir.
Rickey555, you are an embarrassment to homo sapiens. I don't even have the energy to explain to you how stupid your comment at EastCoastMM was (or to define homo sapiens for you- i'm sure you're looking it up on wikipedia right now).
But feel free to continue with your inane, meaningless comments - be sure that the rest of the people on here will rip you to shreds every time you emit the drivel that seems to define you.
It'd be great if you could put a sign on the moon so everyone could read it around the world.
Personally, I'd put a big picture of myself up there.
Gee Ricky, I wish we sheeple could be as smart and witty as you. Dumbass.
Im From Central Coast area in CA and omg it was sooo wonderful!! wish it could happen once a month!! :)
To EastCoastMM: Good question...life is never easy...lol
Is Anderson Cooper gay?
I just think it is so amazing when the sun passes between the moon and the earth!
Yea, and feel that heat too!
No heat, it's at night, Knucklehaid!
