There will be a total lunar eclipse the evening of September 27, 2015.
8:11 PM EDT: Earth’s penumbra begins to dim the Moon.
9:07 PM: Earth’s umbra noticeably dims and reddens the Moon
10:11 PM: Start of totality.
11:23 PM: End of totality.
1:22 AM: End of eclipse.
The Moon will be at perigee during the eclipse – the point in the Moon’s orbit when it is closest to the Earth; the Moon will appear slightly larger and brighter at this time.
The Moon’s perigee is about 50,000 km (31,000 miles) closer to the Earth than its apogee – the point in the Moon’s orbit when it is farthest from the Earth.
Here’s hoping for clear skies!
P.S.: Notice how I didn’t mention “Supermoon” …
