    Before I left the office, I told everyone not to miss it. My family and I are going out right now to take a look. It's a beautiful sight.

    Overcast in the Portland Metro... No surprise there... After all it is the Northwest and December. Enjoy all those that can see it.

    The Grandkids and I are awe struck by such a heavenly vision. In our case there was an airplane with flashing red/white lights passing "underneath" the heavenly bodies as if underscoring the event.

    It's also just now dark... Then there's the light pollution. Chances are even if it was clear, I wouldn't be able to see it. :(
