The timing for the eclipse will be such that for all of Africa and most of western Europe the full Moon will have already risen before the eclipse begins. From North and South America the eclipse will start before the Moon rises. From my location at 94oW, in the Midwest United States, the Moon will be at mid-eclipse shortly after the Moon rises as these two graphics show.
