You'd better mark your calendars if you want to see Sunday's "very rare" event; NASA says the next one won't happen until 2033. This time, the total lunar eclipse will coincide with a supermoon. From the moon's perspective this is a solar eclipse.
Because of the red colour that the naked eye sees as the sun's rays bend around the earth and reach the moon, it has been named "blood moon". A total lunar eclipse occurs during a full moon when the entire moon passes through Earth's dark umbral or inner shadow.
This time around, viewers looking from the Americas, Europe, Africa, western Asia and the eastern Pacific Ocean will have a chance to see the show. It is actually three different events rolled into one, and it will be difficultto ignore the moon in the sky this weekend.
This is the last total lunar eclipse visible anywhere on Earth until 2018. Sunday's moon will be about 14% larger than normal. "A bite out of the Moon (partial phases) should be noticeable starting just after 9 p.m. and the obvious effects will last until about 12:30 a.m".
The moon is some 31,000 miles closer to Earth at perigee than at apogee. Since 1982, it will be the first supermoon eclipse. You can email them to sendit.kltv.com, upload them to sendit.kltv.com, or use #Sendit7 on Instagram or Twitter.
Randy Attwood, executive director of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC), said the "Supermoon Eclipse" is more of a coincidence than anything else, and this eclipse will not look much different from past ones.
While the super blood moon in 2015 will be lovely to look at, don't go blowing any cash frivolously with the thought of the world coming to an end on September 27, 2015. What makes this Sunday's event special is the combination of a supermoon and an eclipse.
