It comes before dawn this morning.
Thursday morning's lunar eclipse starts at 2:23 a.m. Western Standard Time, the moment the partial eclipse begins.
It takes about an hour for the earth's shadow to completely engulf the moon, which means that totality arrives at 3:22 a.m. WST and then lasts for an unusually long 1 hour 41 minutes, ending at 5:03 a.m. WST.
After totality ends, there's another hour of partial eclipse, until the moon finally departs the earth's umbral shadow at 6:03 a.m. in Western Australia.
This eclipse is the deepest we'll see in many years. Around the time of greatest eclipse, around 4 a.m. WST, the moon will be almost impossible to spot, unless you know exactly where to look. During more shallow eclipses, the moon remains a coppery red. Not this time. The coppery hue will fade to almost complete black in the depths of the earth's shadow.
