Don't you just love a good moon? We sure do - there's just something magical about that big glowing orb in the sky.
On our earth that's increasingly seeming like a scary place, the moon remains basically untouched and still has that mysterious, mystical beauty about it.
And this morning, the skies are set to light up with something truly magical...
Ready to look up?There's an exciting event happening in the skies this morning.
What do you need to see it?Well, actually, you didn't need any fancy equipment to catch this event - you just need to know what you're looking for.
It's not gonna be too hard to spot.Because what you're looking out for is a rare eclipse-esque event, called a lunar occultation.
It's worth looking out for.The earth, moon, and planet Mars are going to be perfectly aligned.
And, depending on where you are...Mars is set to disappear completely from the sky!
So, where does it go?Well, technically nowhere - but it'll be hidden completely by the moon for some time this morning.
And this does not happen very often."A lunar occultation involving a planet is a rare event. There are only a few per decade as seen from any given spot on the globe," said AccuWeather's Dave Samuhel.

You just have to know where to look.

The time of day will also point you in the right direction.

On the east coast, it'll be just after sunrise.
