Supermoon Sunday!

supermooneclipse (1)

For the first time in more than 30 years, you can witness a supermoon in combination with a lunar eclipse. Late on Sept. 27, 2015, in the U.S. and much of the world, a total lunar eclipse will mask the moon’s larger-than-life face.

Watch NASA’s live stream from 8:00 p.m. until at least 11:30 p.m. EDT broadcast from Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., with a live feed from the Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles, Calif. Mitzi Adams, a NASA solar physicist at Marshall will discuss the eclipse and answer questions from Twitter. To ask a question, use #askNASA.

Weather permitting, the large red moon will be visible across the whole of Britain from 1.10am BST on Monday morning. At that moment, the Earth’s shadow will start to creep across the face of the full moon, causing it to dim and take on a yellowish hue. At 3.10am BST, the moon will be fully in Earth’s shadow, and for an hour and 12 minutes will turn a dark rusty red, or grey depending on surface conditions. The whole spectacle will be over by 6.25am BST Monday.
