I have to try to find a good place to sit and wait... I guess it will be low on the horizon for us right?

Is there any special way to make these shots, or do I just shoot away?

Thanks in advance

From the link in the first post ;)

In the USA, the eclipse will already be underway when the moon rises on Saturday evening. Observing tip: Find a place with a clear view of the eastern horizon and station yourself there at sunset. As the sun goes down behind you, a red moon will rise before your eyes.

From my post 2 above yours( also from the link in the 1st post of this thread)

In the USA, the eclipse will already be underway when the moon rises on Saturday evening. Observing tip: Find a place with a clear view of the eastern horizon and station yourself there at sunset. As the sun goes down behind you, a red moon will rise before your eyes.

For saturday just look up the time for the sunset and watch for the moon (find a clear view of the eastern horizon)

Sunset is at 5:53pm. I'd start looking close to 5:00pm maybe a bit earlier.

For those of us in the country, it will be easy, to get on top of a hill that overlooks the eastern horizon. For those of you in the City, to go the highest building you can that has a clear view of the horizon, that way you'll get the view just a few seconds before those at ground-level. And the moon over the cityscape should be an interesting shot. Have a good one guys!
