A total lunar eclipse will occur on December 10th. For the eastern US, only the very beginning of the eclipse will be visible just before sunrise when the moon is setting. You will see the moon starting to darken but may not be able to see any color before it sets. The western US will see most of the eclipse, while Australia and Asia will see the entire eclipse.
The next total lunar eclipse visible in North America is before dawn December 10, 2011. This post has links to info for other parts of the globe, too.
