Lunar Eclipse happening tonight at moonrise:
In the USA, the eclipse will already be underway when the moon rises on Saturday evening. Observing tip: Find a place with a clear view of the eastern horizon and station yourself there at sunset. As the sun goes down behind you, a red moon will rise before your eyes.
Xue adds: The last time there was a total lunar eclipse was two years ago, on the night the Red Sox won the World Series in St. Louis. They set up a big telescope on Foss Hill!
