Watch for 'Super-Sized' Blood Red Lunar Eclipse This Saturday Morning

West Coasters may want to make an effort to get up slightly before day break tomorrow. Starting around 4:45 a.m. PST on Dec. 10, a lunar eclipse will be visible to the western U.S. and Canada with even more striking views in Australia and Eastern Asia, according to Space.com.

Learn more about eclipse and why the moon will appear red:

Space.com reports that it is nearly impossible for the moon to go completely dark during an eclipse, as light from the sun usually sneaks past Earth. It states conditions of the atmosphere will determine the darkness of the moon. As the video states, the moon will begin to be eclipsed as it is setting, making it lower in the sky and therefore appearing larger.

This will be the last full lunar eclipse until 2014.
