Cloudy skies forecast for the weekend? Never fear. The first supermoon total lunar eclipse in 33 years will be visible to anyone with Internet access, thanks to NASA TV.

People in the eastern regions of North America and all of South America can see the rare spectacle after sunset this Sunday, September 27, while Europe, the Middle East and Africa will be able to catch a glimpse of it on the morning of the 28th. The next time such an event will occur won’t be until the year 2033, NASA said.

Cloudy weather in the Western US is projected to hurt viewing conditions there, but NASA will be providing a livestream for the occasion.  The broadcast will begin at 8 PM from the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

Online robotic telescope service Slooh will also be livestreaming at 8 PM EDT.
