~Enjoy the evening air, while viewing the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse this Sunday~
September 25, 2015
Stargazers are in for a treat Sunday, when a super-moon combines with a lunar eclipse for the first time since 1982.
The super-moon eclipse will last 1 hour and 11 minutes, and will be visible to North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of West Asia and the eastern Pacific, according to NASA. Weather permitting, the super-moon will be visible after nightfall, and the eclipse will cast it into shadow beginning at 8:11 p.m. ET. The total eclipse starts at 10:11 p.m. ET, peaking at 10:47 p.m. ET.
A rare phenomenon, there have only been five super-moon eclipes since 1900 (in 1910, 1928, 1946, 1964 and 1982). After Sunday, the next super-moon eclipse will occur in 2033.
