If you can see the moon or where it's supposed to be, you can see the eclipse. The moon isn't conmpletley dark, but should show in a pale gray to red light (reflected earthlight). It's cloudy in the southeast here, so I'm missing it
. Right now (21:06 UTC), the total phase is ending or close to that, so you should see a bit of light showing up on the darkened moon. There's another one later this year, so we can do some "basic eclipse observation instructions" for that one.
