What is it?

A rare phenomenon where the moon will be closer to us than ever — 222,000 miles away instead of the typical 240,000 and appear to have a reddish hue. The supermoon this year will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter in the sky than the average 2015.

When to see it?

Peak eclipse will be at 10:47 pm ET on Sunday, September 27th. The moon will start darkening at 8:11 pm ET, and it will start to pass through the Earth’s dark umbral shadow at 9:07 pm. It’ll be completely shaded for about an hour starting around 10 pm.

Why you may want to see it?

It’s a combination of curiosities that hasn’t happened since 1982, and won’t happen again until 2033.

Also, High Tide is 8:16 pm in Highlands, so you might want to move your cars..
