A Lunar Eclipse!

The International Herald Tribune reports that tonight (Saturday) will be the first total eclipse of the moon in three years. The report explains that the moon will turn shades of amber and crimson as it passes behind the Earth's shadow.

People in Europe, Africa and the Middle East will have the best view, however, it can be seen from the Americas too, The Canadian Press reports.

An interesting fact reported by the International Herald Tribune: While eastern Australia, Alaska and New Zealand will miss Saturday's show, they will have front row seats to the next total lunar eclipse, on Aug. 28. It also reports that the total lunar eclipse will last for about an hour.
