Millions of people were lucky enough to see the supermoon lunar eclipse Sunday, Sept. 27. A “supermoon” is what happens when a full moon coincides with the Moon being at its closest point to Earth. The moon appeared 14 percent larger than normal. During a lunar eclipse, the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow which shades the Moon a distinct red color. Sunday night was the first time both of these phenomenon’s have paired together since 1982 to create Supermoon Eclipse. The next time you‘ll see this happen will be in 2033.
