“Super” Lunar Eclipse: Sunday Eve!

CLEAR YOUR SCHEDULES, because Sunday night for the first time in 32 years, we will have both a Supermoon AND a total lunar eclipse– it will be another 18 years before this happens again!

The moon will peak Sunday night on September 27 at 6:39pm in Newport Beach– right after the sun sets at 6:43pm.

It will have a luminosity at nearly 100% and will appear very large as it is rising. But don’t miss it– after only 10-20 minutes you will begin to see a noticeable decrease in both perceived size and actual brightness,so we highly recommend taking the 10 minutes to watch it rise!

As it rises, the eclipse will have already begun (starting at 5:13pm), and will peak just one hour later, at 7:47pm.  Due to our position on the globe, we will see all of the total lunar eclipse.

Here are the eclipse details:

 Sun, Sept 27, 2015 at 5:13 PM
Maximum: Sun, Sept 27, 2015 at 7:47 PM
Ends: Sun, Sept 27, 2015 at 10:22 PM

Duration: 5 hours, 8 minutes
