Look for drama in the western sky before daybreak Saturday, as a partial lunar eclipse overtakes the setting moon.

The eclipse will begin at 5:17 a.m. here, when the moon first touches Earth's shadow. The greatest part of the moon will be in shadow by 6:38 a.m. The moon will sink below the horizon before the eclipse ends at 8 a.m.

If the weather is clear, Texans will get to see most of the action, according to StarDate magazine, published by the University of Texas' McDonald Observatory.

Want to see the entire event? Hawaii is the place to be.
