Been up since 4 when it started, pretty cool to see all the different phases it's going through at once. I also noticed here that the little dipper was right above the moon at the same time, like it was poured out of it

Clouds here too. I've been going out and checking for the last hour or so. Got one peak when it was about 3/4 covered.

Once in a blue moon. I got to watch 5he whole thing on my drive in to work. Solid meh. It didn't ever look like a defined line covering it.... more of a blotchy shadow creeping over

Either you read a book once, or someone told you. Hell, I'm impressed you can even spell "possible".
