Partial lunar eclipse (97%)
penumbral starts 1:02 am, partial starts 2:18 am
max 4:02 am (partial, 97% coverage)
partial ends 5:47 am, moonset 7:01 am, penumbral ends 7:03 am.

Officially listed as a "partial," but with 97% coverage it should basically look like a total eclipse, aside from maybe a bright spot at one edge. But most of the action takes place between about 3-5 AM.
