The action begins around 4:45 a.m. Pacific Standard Time when the red shadow of Earth first falls across the lunar disk. By 6:05 a.m. Pacific Time, the moon will be fully engulfed in red light. This event—the last total lunar eclipse until 2014—is visible from the Pacific side of North America, across the entire Pacific Ocean to Asia and Eastern Europe.View the global visibility map at http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/OHfigures/OH2011-Fig06.pdfLearn more about lunar eclipses by viewing the video below.
