Lunar Eclipse at Dawn
Light seems to pool at the bottom of the full moon in a picture of a lunar eclipse taken from Iran in 2008.
This weekend sky-watchers in western North America will be able to catch a similar sight during the last total lunar eclipse until 2014. The moon show will be visible from the Pacific coast on Saturday at dawn, appearing low in the western horizon.
The entire lunar eclipse will be visible from East Asia, Australia, and the far western part of North America, including Alaska as well as Canada's Yukon and Northwest Territories.
The eclipse will last for three and a half hours, starting at 4:45 a.m. Pacific time.
