While the eclipse will be visible from all of North America, "If you're in the central or western parts of the U.S. and Canada, you'll see the total eclipse high in a dark sky well before sunrise. Easterners will find dawn brightening and the Moon sinking low in the west while the eclipse is in progress — offering particularly interesting photo opportunities. Viewers in Australia and eastern Asia get to view this event on the evening of October 8th local date," according to Sky & Telescope magazine.

As in April, the eclipse this week will be another "Blood Moon" because, as Space.com explains, the reflected light off the lunar surface first passed through the Earth's atmosphere, where the sun's rays are scattered, stripping out the other colors in the spectrum.
