The Super Moon Eclipse

‘The eclipse itself technically begins at 5:40 p.m., but it won’t be visible on the West Coast until 6:40 p.m.  The total eclipse starts at 7:11 p.m. and ends at 8:23 p.m.  After that, you can watch the moon slowly emerge from Earth’s shadow just before 10 p.m. when the penumbra, the faintest bit of shadow, disappears from the lunar disk.’ LATimes



“The Moon will appear to be larger than normal because the Moon will be just 59 minutes past its closest approach to Earth in 2015 at mid-eclipse, sometimes called a supermoon.  The simulation below shows the approximate appearance of the Moon passing through Earth’s shadow. The Moon’s brightness is exaggerated within the umbral shadow. The northern portion of the Moon was closest to the center of the shadow, making it darkest, and most red in appearance.” wiki
