Laura's picture

In the U.S., Canada, and Central America we will be able to view a supermoon lunar eclipse (also called a blood moon because of its color) later this month.  In our area the event will begin at 8:11 pm on September 27 and end at 1:22 am on September 28 with the maximum viewing time being 10:47 pm.  It is the fourth in a tetrad of eclipses this year.
