Most people will have to get up extra early to check out the April 4, 2015 total eclipse of the moon! The eclipse starts at 3:16 am PDT with totality happening at 4:458 am PDT and lasting roughly 4 minutes and 43 seconds, so to get the "total" experience you have to have to be right on time--I'm setting my alarm clock for this one! This is apparently the shortest lunar eclipse of the century.
Since it is occurring in the morning it is best seen from west of the Mississippi. East of the Mississippi the rising sun will only allow for viewing a partial eclipse.
