The moon and the Earth will cooperate.

But will the clouds?

More to the point, will the clouds steer clear of Northeastern Oregon tonight and early Tuesday when the Earth's shadow obscures the moon, creating a total lunar eclipse.

Tonight's eclipse, which starts about 10:55 p.m., is the first that's potentially visible, in its entirety, from Baker City since Dec. 21, 2010.

The total eclipse - when the full moon is completely blocked by the Earth's shadow - will last for 78 minutes, from 12:06 a.m. until 1:24 a.m.
