Lunar eclipse tomorrow morning

Tomorrow morning, as the Sun is rising, there will be a total lunar eclipse visible over most of the United States and most of the Pacific rim. Alpha supports queries about lunar eclipses:

lunar eclipse on Oct 7 2014

But using Wolfram Language, we can use the LunarEclipse symbol in the World map showing region of visibility of the eclipse:

GeoGraphics[{GeoStyling[None], Opacity[.3], Gray,
 LunarEclipse[DateObject[{2014, 10, 7}], "TotalPhasePolygon"]}, GeoProjection -> "Equirectangular"]

enter image description here

Assuming the clouds aren't a problem in your area, you might want to get up before the Sun and look to the West to see the eclipsed Moon as the Sun comes up in the East.
