Super Blood Moon Sunday

This weekend, a rare event will take place on Sunday. This rare event is called a supermoon lunar eclipse which will happen Sunday evening.

On Sunday, the full moon will look 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual. With the lunar eclipse on top of it and the sun’s light blocked by Earth, the refracted light around the Earth will make the moon glow red.

The last time this occurred was in 1982. There have been only five Super Blood Moons in the past 115 years,  so if you miss it on Sunday, you will have to wait until 2033 to see it next. The best time to see it is between 9:11 p.m. CDT and 9:47 p.m. To learn more what a supermoon lunar eclipse is, watch the video above.
