CHICAGO — It’s a big weekend for astronomy fans.
We’re due for a total lunar eclipse Sunday night, coupled with a “supermoon”.
That’s a full moon that looks larger than usual, because it’s at its closest point of orbit with the earth.
The eclipse will give it a reddish or copper color, so some call it a blood moon.
The eclipse begins at 8:07 p.m. Sunday and peaks from 9:11 p.m – 10:23 p.m.
The next supermoon eclipse will be in 2033.
