【Nature】Supermoon combines with a lunar eclipse for the first time since 1982

On Sept. 27, we’re going to have a perigee full moon—the closest full moon of the year." A supermoon occurs when a new or full moon is at its closest to the Earth. This proximity makes the moon appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter in the sky than an apogee full moon, hence the term "supermoon."

The supermoon eclipse will be visible to North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of West Asia and the eastern Pacific. Weather permitting, the supermoon will be visible after nightfall, and the eclipse will cast it into shadow beginning at 8:11 p.m. ET. The total eclipse starts at 10:11 p.m. ET, peaking at 10:47 p.m. ET.

A rare phenomenon, there have only been five supermoon eclipses since 1900 (in 1910, 1928, 1946, 1964 and 1982). After Sunday, the next supermoon eclipse will occur in 2033.
