Google is livestreaming the lunar eclipse (COURTESY AKIRA FUJII AND SKY & T)

The event itself is expected to start at 2:20 p.m.

The eclipse will be visible to people in Europe, Africa, Central Asia and Australia, but for those of us who can’t step outside to see the event, Google’s got it covered with a livestream on YouTube, through the sky layer on Google Earth or through the Slooh Space Camera Android app.

As The Post’s Elizabeth Flock wrote over on Blog Post, this is the first total lunar eclipse of the year and is expected to last a breathtaking 100 minutes from start to finish.
