CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Here comes a total lunar eclipse and supermoon, all wrapped into one.

The moon, Earth and sun will line up this weekend for the only total lunar eclipse this year and next. At the same time, the moon will be ever so closer to Earth and appear slightly bigger and brighter than usual — a supermoon.(…)

 

will last 62 minutes, beginning at 11:41 p.m. EST Sunday.

If the skies are clear, the entire eclipse will be visible in North and South America, as well as Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and the French and Spanish coasts. The rest of Europe, as well as Africa, will have partial viewing before the moon sets.

During totality, the moon will look red because of sunlight scattering off Earth’s atmosphere.

The next total lunar eclipse won’t be until May 2021.

The first ‘supermoon’ lunar eclipse in over 30 years will grace our skies later this month.

Depending on weather conditions on September 28, lucky viewers will see a full moon that looks larger and brighter than usual, with a red tinge.

It will be first ‘supermoon’ lunar eclipse since 1982 and there won’t be another until 2033, according to Nasa.
