If you're under 33 years-old, you've never seen a supermoon lunar eclipse. And if you're older than 33, it's been a while. Now's your chance to view this phenomenon! This Sunday night a blood-red moon will appear in the sky, announcing the lunar eclipse. While the earth is lined up between the full moon and the sun during the eclipse a bit of sunlight still reaches the moon, bathing it in a reddish color.
Sunday's lunar eclipse is unique because the moon will be closer to the earth than usual, making it appear bigger -- a supermoon. This is the first supermoon lunar eclipse since 1982 and will be the last until 2033.
The NASA website has in-depth information about Sunday's supermoon eclipse. If you're intersted in learning more about viewing eclipses or other astronomical phenomena, take a look at the following titles from OPL's collection. Happy
