Bright and early tomorrow morning, get ready for a celestial treat.

The Bay Area should have one of the best views of a total lunar eclipse. NASA says a red shadow will start to fall across the moon at 4:45 a.m. By 6:05, the moon will be totally engulfed in red light. There won't be another total lunar eclipse for three years.

The Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland will be open from 4 a.m. to 7 for free eclipse watching.
