Washington: A partial lunar eclipse will be visible across much of North America early Saturday morning.

According to the editors of StarDate magazine, as Earth’s long shadow falls across the Moon, the part in the shadow will turn dark. It will look as though a chunk were missing from the Moon.

The entire eclipse is visible across the Pacific Basin, including Hawaii.

The eclipse will be invisible to almost everyone in the Eastern time zone, as the Moon either will be below the horizon as the eclipse begins, or nearly so, as in the westernmost parts of the time zone like Louisville, KY and Atlanta.

The majority of viewers in the Central time zone, including most of Texas, will see most of the eclipse. Everyone in the Mountain time zone will see the beginning of the eclipse. Those in the easternmost portions of the time zone, like Rapid City, SD and Denver, only will see the beginning of the event. Those in farther west, such as Salt Lake City and Boise, ID, will see most of the event.

Everyone in the Pacific time zone will see the entire eclipse.
