This Saturday, December 10th, set your alarm clock early and get your camera and tripod out for a rare treat. There will be a total lunar eclipse viewable in the western United States and Canada. The show begins at 4:45am when the red shadow of earth first falls across the moon. By 6:05, the moon will be fully engulfed in beautiful red light. You won’t want to miss this as it will not be until 2014 before we have another.
