A Super Blood Moon To Color The Autumn Sky

It's another phase of the moon again Pals!

This moon will appear 14 times larger. 

There is a total eclipse of the moon on the night of September 27-28, 2015. According to Nasa: On the night of Sept. 27 and into the early hours of Sept. 28, the full Moon will glide through the shadow of Earth, turning the Harvest Moon a golden-red color akin to autumn leaves.

The action begins at 9:07 PM Eastern Time on the evening of Sept 27th when the edge of the Moon first enters the amber core of Earth’s shadow.  For the next three hours and 18 minutes, Earth's shadow will move across the lunar disk.

Totality begins at 10:11 PM Eastern Time.  That’s when the Moon is completely enveloped by the shadow of our planet.  Totality lasts for an hour and 12 minutes so there is plenty of time to soak up the suddenly-red moonlight.
Fun full moon, full moon names, full moon phases, full moon facts
You won't see this Supermoon again until 2033!
