Don’t forget to look up in the sky on the night of Sept. 27 because the rare appearance of the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse will occur for the first time in since 1982 or more than three decades.

The Supermoon happens when the moon’s course around Earth is elliptical rather than its usual circular orbit, which means that it doesn’t have the same distance from Earth. When a full moon attains its perigee, the point of the moon’s orbit when it’s closest to Earth, it makes the moon seems 14% brighter and 30% larger.

Unusual Supermoon Lunar Eclipse to Appear this Month

To acquire the legendary Supermoon Lunar Eclipse, a supermoon must be joined by a Lunar Eclipse. So when a full moon is in its pedigree then passes through the Earth’s shadow, Supermoon Lunar Eclipse is formed which happens rarely in a century.

What makes the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse different from the usual supermoon is that it can be seen almost blood red or, at least, have a reddish-orange shade.

After this year’s Supermoon Lunar Eclipse, it will next appear in year 2033 so better witness it this time. The eclipse should be visible in some countries like Middle East, America, Africa and Europe.  While folks in Alaska and Western Asia might see a partial eclipse in the early morning periods.
