Don't miss it!
The first of two total lunar eclipses in 2007 is unique in that it is partly visible from every continent around the world. The entire event will be visible from Europe, Africa and western Asia. In eastern Asia, moonset occurs during various stages of the eclipse. For example, the Moon sets while in total eclipse from central China and southeast Asia. Western Australia catches part of the initial partial phases but the Moon sets before totality. Observers in eastern North and South America will find the Moon already partially or totality eclipsed at moonrise. From western North America, only the final penumbral phases are visible.
UPDATE: Grrrr. It's too cloudy in the eastern sky here to see the moon.
