Total Lunar Eclipse

Yup, tomorrow night, (Feb 20) starting at 10:01pm, there will be a total lunar eclipse.

"A total eclipse of the Moon occurs during the night of Wednesday, February 20/21, 2008. The entire event is visible from South America and most of North America (on Feb. 20) as well as Western Europe, Africa, and western Asia (on Feb. 21). During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon's disk can take on a dramatically colorful appearance from bright orange to blood red to dark brown and (rarely) very dark gray."

You can look up a diagram of the eclipse for your time zone at the NASA site.
