Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight

Actually, early tomorrow morning, near dawn.

And apparently this one has some extra tricks:

On Oct. 8, Interested skywatchers should attempt to see the total eclipse of the moon and the rising sun simultaneously. The little-used name for this effect is called a "selenelion," a phenomenon that celestial geometry says cannot happen.

Well, we'll see if it does...or not.
