It will be an event not seen since 1982….a rare “supermoon blood moon eclipse” happens this weekend.
What makes this unique is the fact that it involves the celestial trio of a full moon, a lunar eclipse, and lunar perigee – which is when the moon is closest is its orbit to earth. During this time, the moon appears larger and brighter.
Additionally, this is considered a “blood moon” because of the eerie, deep red hue the moon will appear to have during the eclipse.
It will be a sight to see, if we can see it in north Georgia! Clouds are currently in the forecast for Sunday night when the eclipse begins at 9:07pm EDT. The eclipse will enter totality at 10:11pm Sunday. Here’s to hoping the clouds will break, because we will not get another chance to see this until 2033.
