Supermoon Eclipse on September 27th, 28th

On Sunday, Sept. 27th at 10:11 P.M. Eastern Time (United States) and in the after-midnight hours of Monday, Sept. 28th for much of the world, a truly rare, spectacular sight will grace the sky. The moon will experience a total lunar eclipse, and the moon appears larger than normal - being a supermoon! This will be visible in most (not all) areas of the world, especially North America, South America, Europe, Africa, western Asia, and eastern parts of the Pacific Ocean islands. Additionally, a shadow will appear a couple hours before the total eclipse. More details about the supermoon eclipse can be found in this NASA report by Ashley Morrow. If you cannot see the moon from where you live due to weather, geographic location, etc., you can access a live Slooh.com webcast.
