There is another total lunar eclipse coming tomorrow night, and it will be viewable (assuming clear skies) in the western hemisphere and much of Europe and Africa.

It's being called a "supermoon" lunar eclipse because the full moon will be at the perigee (closest point to Earth) of its orbit, making it appear slightly larger than usual in the sky. It is supposed to begin at 8:11 pm EST, entering total eclipse at 9:07 pm. As eastern MA is supposed to clear to partly cloudy skies, I'm intending to spend time outside tomorrow to observe. As it's a lunar eclipse, you don't need any special gear to safely look.

I saw it tonight. It looked pretty cool. Usually when stuff like this happens it's cloudy where I live so I miss out on a lot. So glad we clear skies tonight.

I have seen some pictures of it online and it looked awesome! We were not able to see it where I live due to the cloudy/rainy weather.
