Blood-red eclipse this weekend can be seen from most parts of America, Hawaii, northwestern Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Central and E. Asia

The last total lunar eclipse of 2011 on Saturday will offer a rare chance to see an 'impossible' eclipse, with the moon red and the rising sun in the sky simultaneously.

The eclipse will begin at 4.45am PST when a red shadow starts to cover the moon.
