LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” Don't blink. There's a total eclipse of the moon Saturday â€” and it's an unusually short one.
If there are clear skies, the 3Â½-hour spectacle is visible from start to finish from the western U.S. and Canada where it occurs before dawn. Skygazers in the Midwest and East Coast only get part of the lunar show.
The eclipse can also be seen in its entirety Saturday night from eastern Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Europe and Africa are shut out.
