Total lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning: How to watch it

Most observers in both North and South America will be able to watch the entire event, according to Espenak. But viewers in the eastern half of South America and northwestern Africa will miss some stages of the eclipse, because they occur after moonset. Observers in Japan and Australia will miss the earlier stages of the eclipse, since it begins before moonrise. New Zealanders will see the entire eclipse, except in the southwest where the eclipse is already in progress at moonrise.
No part of the eclipse will be visible from Europe, most of Africa, the Middle East or most of Asia, notes Espenak.
