    Are we able to catch the event? It seems like the eclipse will occur in the morning over here in Singapore.

    Bro,
    Thanks for sharing.
    Unfortunately, we in Asia might not be able to witness it. It says the eclipse will begin at 10:44 p.m. Greenwich mean time on 3 March i.e. tonight. This would already be 6:44 AM in Singapore tomorrow morning. Sun already out in full force. Too bad, too bad...
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    I guess as long as your western horizon is not blocked, you will be able to see. The moon is 'almost' overhead now. By 4 AM, I will move around 50-55 degrees towards the horizon (i.e. 35 degrees from the horizon...) Just make sure your western horizon is not obstructed. Good luck bro.
