Australia, East Asia and the east coast of America will get the best view
Early Saturday morning, the Earth will move between the moon and the sun, completing one of the shortest lunar eclipses in recent history.
The event, which will be total for just under five minutes, will be most easily visible for those in Australia and East Asia on Saturday night. The east of America will also get some chance to spot it, with it getting less spectacular towards the west of the country.
The eclipse is the third in a tetrad of lunar eclipses, made up of four in a series that began in April last year and will end in September. As such, some have seen the event as deeply significant — the tetrad could be a sign from God, some Christian pastors have said, and may even be a message that judgment is coming.
