Super Blood Moon Eclipse

A red super moon in combination with a lunar eclipse can be witnessed this weekend, the first time since 1982. Beginning during the late night hours of September 27th, a total lunar eclipse will mask the moon’s larger-than-life face across the world. The most recent blood moon occurred during Easter, and this super blood moon lunar eclipse will be the fourth event in a ‘Tetrad,’ which some believe marks the the beginning of significant events. The moon will enter the dark part of Earth’s shadow at approximately 9:07pm EST, becoming a total eclipse by 10:11pm, and then reemerge from the shadow 12-minutes later.

“There will be several organizations performing live webcasts of the event, including the Slooh Community Observatory. Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory is holding a public viewing event, where it will provide onlookers with binoculars and telescopes to witness the event. The University of Arizona’s SkyCenter will be broadcasting live telescope footage on its site, as well,” according to Inhabitat.
