A unique event is occurring in the sky this weekend in our neck of the woods. On Sundday, September 27th we will be able to watch a total lunar eclipse starting around 9 pm. This eclipse is particularly special because the moon will also be at perigee on this day, which is when its orbit comes closest to our earth; this is sometimes called a “supermoon.”
Tell the students to make sure they watch because another supermoon lunar eclipse will not happen again until 2033!
What a spectacular show!
