Supermoon Lunar Eclipse Arrives Sunday Night After Much Anticipation
After weeks of anticipation, the supermoon lunar eclipse is upon us.
Weather permitting, the long-awaited “blood moon” will be visible across the U.S. starting at 9:07 p.m. EDT. Just in case bad weather gets in the way — or you just don’t feel like heading outside — we’ll be hosting NASA’s live video feed right here. It runs from 8:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. EDT.
Here you’ll also be able to see spectacular new photos of the eclipse from across the country, taken by skywatchers and professional astronomers.
If you happen to get a great shot of the eclipse (click here for some pointers), please email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or follow @HuffPostScience on Twitter and Instagram to tag us in your posts, and use the hashtag #HPSuperEclispe. Your photo may be featured.
Wishing you clear skies!
