There’s a total lunar eclipse coming up early Saturday morning and you don’t want to miss it.

In order to see this one you are going to have to keep your eyes on the clock. The moment of totality, when the entire moon is bathed in the Earth’s copper-colored shadow, will begin at 4:58 a.m. Pacific time Saturday and it will last for just under five minutes.

That makes it the shortest lunar eclipse of the century…
