Little break from garden things, because a super blood moon eclipse is coming!
For some of us anyway. As it is with these things, only some areas will be able to view the spectacle.
A ‘super moon’ is when the moon is full and at perigee; the part of it’s orbit that brings it the closest to earth. This one happens to be the closest of 2015.
A blood moon or lunar eclipse is when the earth is between the Sun and our moon, this blocks a lot of the light from the sun and the moon appears red.
On the night of September 27/28th the moon will be at it’s closest (super) and experiencing eclipse.
For me in the UK, partial eclipse begins at 2.07am, reaches full eclipse at 3.47am, and ends at 5.27am. I might try and stay up.. who’s with me?
