Supermoon to Coincide With Lunar Eclipse in Rare Celestial Event Sunday Night

A spectrum of lunar events will occur Sunday evening in an phenomenon that won't happen for another 18 years.

A lunar eclipse will coincide with a supermoon on Sept. 27 at 9:07 p.m. EDT. As the moon will be in its closest proximity to Earth, it will appear up to 14 percent larger.

This supermoon, also called a harvest moon due to its occurrence falling at the beginning of the autumn season, will have an extra characteristic.

Known as a blood moon, the moon will pass behind the Earth into its shadow, resulting in a red tint across its surface.

"The red portion of sunlight is what makes it through our atmosphere to the other side, bent toward the eclipsed moon, so that even though the moon is within Earth's shadow, the red portion of the sun's light can give the moon this ghostly illumination.

I'm hoping that I'll be able to see it myself, the forecast says it's going to be partly cloudy tonight. I'll try and take a picture of it if it's visible here and post it tomorrow.

Way cool! Would love to see it but fat chance haven't seen the sun or moon in 4 or 5 days. Rained almost all day here today no worries was watching NFL RedZone all day.
