In some parts of the world the early morning moon will appear red and eclipsed in the sky along with the sun.  This rare celestial event is called a "selenelion".  The majority of the Western Hemisphere should be able to see this early tomorrow morning in the hours just before dawn.  Those in the Eastern Hemisphere can watch the eclipse Saturday night, beginning at moonrise.  To sum up, those in the United States will have the chance to see the eclipse at moonset Saturday Morning; Europeans, and North Africans can catch it just at moonrise on Saturday evening, and Australians will have a great view of the whole show.
