|Me and my girlfriend fell asleep watching TV around 8:45. I woke up sometime around 12:00 and shook her awake because I remembered that there was supposed to be some eclipse that she wanted to see tonight.
We went out on the 8th floor balcony looking for the moon (which we never found) and then she told me she thought she'd found it. I looked toward the direction she was pointing, I'd say north east of where we were and saw a yellow (She said orangish red, I'm color blind I guess) sort of crescent shaped figure in the sky over shoreline or possibly edmonds. I thought it might have been the moon at first but it was upside down, kind of like a frown, then I remembered that it was an eclipse so the moon would look funny.
We both kept watching it for while until we noticed the change in altitude, or distance possibly. Sadly enough neither me or my girlfriend noticed anything odd for at least 10 minutes, it moved so slow!!! Like the second hand on a clock.
After about 45 minutes we both figured that it had changed directions at least 4 times until it had gotten too small to see but it never went behind anything, which meant it must have been higher up than it looked.
